Grant funds awarded for downtown property
The old Lincoln State Bank building was awarded a $90,000 Heritage Trust Fund grant by the KSHPO - Kansas State Historic Preservation Office to repair the exterior’s woodwork including the windows, doors and architectural details.
The building sits at the southwest corner of Lincoln and Fourth Streets and is registered as a national historic place.
The Heritage Trust Fund (HTF) is a state program that provides matching funds for the preservation of properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places or the Register of Historic Kansas Places. The HTF reimburses expenses for projects that preserve or restore historic properties. Qualifying expenses include professional fees and construction costs. Properties owned by the state or federal governments are not eligible, but those owned by local governments, private individuals, non-profit, and for-profit entities qualify. Individual grant awards may not exceed $90,000 and must be matched by the grant recipient. Yearly grant rounds are highly competitive.
