Neighborhood Preservation Fund
The Neighborhood Preservation Fund began in 2011, as a way to use proceeds from the Reno Harvest of Homes Tour and to be a friend of preservation. It is designed to provide grants for building improvement and to rehabilitate historic (over 50 years) structures in Reno. The goal is to improve curb appeal and the look of older neighborhoods. Work focuses on the exterior of buildings and in a manner authentic with the original architectural style.
We have now completed six funding cycles and the applications have been diverse, from grand public buildings to classic bungalows. We have helped preserve almost 40 structures! Thanks are owed to Jack Hursh and Cindy Ainsworth who ably headed this year's strong panel of local experts in history, architecture and construction: Sharon Honig-Bear, Scott Learey, Kimberly Roberts and ZoAnn Campana.
Additional donations to this fund are always welcome!
