The Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office and the Wyoming Main Street Office announce the availability of the Historic Architecture Assistance Fund. This program, funded for the current biennium, will provide the services of architects to the owners of historic buildings or buildings located in Main Street communities. This fund is meant to support private property owners, who are not eligible for many grant programs. Not-for-profit property owners may also submit applications for the use of the fund.

The program cannot fund all of the architectural services needed for a complete rehabilitation project, but is ideal for consultation during emergency situations and addressing discreet problems with buildings. Typical projects that can be funded include an initial building assessment, structural analysis, building code and ADA requirements, and façade and signage schematic design. The Main Street Program and the State Historic Preservation Office will review applications, select projects to fund, contract for the professional for services to be rendered, and will pay the consultant directly.

Applications for the use of the fund may be submitted at any time, but are reviewed quarterly: January 15, July 15, April 15, and October 15. Applications, which will identify the building and the need for professional consultation, can be submitted to either the Wyoming Main Street Program or the State Historic Preservation Office. Applications and more information are available by calling 307-777-8594 or 307-777-2934.
