Wheeling Historic Revitalization Subgrant Program
The Wheeling Historic Revitalization Subgrant Program seeks to fund downtown commercial redevelopment, and catalytic urban neighborhood redevelopment projects. In 2021, Wheeling Heritage received a Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grant from the National Park Service, Department of the Interior to create this program. Wheeling Heritage was awarded $750,000 to subgrant to qualified projects over a period of three years.
The objective of the Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization grant program is to support the rehabilitation of historic properties at the National, State, and local level of significance in order to rehabilitate, protect, and foster economic development in rural communities (less than 50,000 population) through subgrants which come from States, Tribes, Certified Local Governments, and non-profits able to support a competitive subgrant program. This program will fund preservation projects for historic sites to include architectural/engineering services (not to exceed 20% of the grant award) and physical preservation.
The purpose of the Wheeling Historic Revitalization Subgrant Program is to support the revitalization of Wheeling through the redevelopment of commercial downtown properties, and catalytic redevelopments in our urban neighborhoods.
