2022 Maine Historic Preservation Matching Grants  

for Private Non-Profit Organizations  


The 1772 Foundation, in partnership with Maine Preservation, has announced that funding in the form of 1:1 matching grants of up to $10,000 will be made available for historic preservation projects. Maine Preservation is honored to partner with the 1772 Foundation and is grateful for its continued support of all types of historic preservation projects in Maine.  

To demonstrate the sustainability of historic sites, applicants will be required to submit a cyclical maintenance/stewardship plan, and a condition assessment, with, if needed, project phasing detail that has been prepared or updated within the last five years. If an appropriate plan does not exist, the Foundation will consider providing support for the development of a plan on a case-by-case basis.  

All organizations that wish to be considered should complete our online Letter of Inquiry form.  

Letters of inquiry will be accepted until November 5, 2021.  

Invited applications will be due ****  

Not all letters of inquiry will result in invitations to submit full applications.  

To be eligible to apply, organizations must have a 501(c)(3) IRS designation.  

Organizations also must have closed any previously awarded matching grant to be eligible to apply.  

Funding will not be provided for buildings currently used as schools or houses of worship.  

The Foundation will consider the following:  


· Matching grants for exterior painting, finishes and surface restoration

· Matching grants for repairs to/restoration of porches, roofs and windows
