Grant Requests

The goal of our company is first and foremost to promote and preserve Peoria’s architectural heritage by saving and reusing antique home materials. We believe old home owners are not just occupants, but stewards. Our homes are entrusted to us to care for and pass on to the future generations. These homes are our city’s treasure and we hope to do our small part to help preserve them. This grant is to be used to increase the value and functionality of older homes in Peoria with historically appropriate materials.

This grant of a $250 credit will be awarded to one recipient once a quarter on March 31st, June 30th, September 30th, and December 31st. Applications are due one week before the deadline.

Requirements: Applicants must be owners and occupying the home. Proof will be required of the selected applicant.

Homes must be 50 years of age or older.

Homes must be located within Peoria, Illinois.

Repairs or projects proposed for the grant must be permanent or semi-permanent in nature. (For example: replacing modern doors with antique doors, replacing mortise locks/broken hardware, matching/filling in trim, using historic materials in bathroom or kitchen restorations)

Please submit a picture of the intended project with your application.

Selected applicants will be notified via email and by phone. Pictures of completed projects are appreciated and encouraged.

Applicants will be selected at our discretion based on most need and whether current inventory can complete the applicant’s project.
