The City of Astoria has received a grant from the State Historic Preservation Office to assist property owners with historic renovations. The Astoria Historic Landmarks Commission’s renovation grant program will make these funds available to homeowners desiring to make exterior rehabilitation or renovation improvements. For 2017, projects in the Uniontown neighborhood will take priority. Should additional funds be available after initial outreach to the Uniontown area, funds will be open to other eligible historic properties.

Properties designated as a Historic Landmark, contributing to a National Register Historic District, or as a National Landmark are eligible. Renovation or rehabilitation work needs be located on the primary facade of the structure or where it is highly visible to the public. Structural improvements to preserve the integrity of the structure may also qualify.

Projects may receive 50% of the project cost up to a maximum of $3,000 in grant funds. Projects must be completed by July 31, 2017.
