NPA to offer $1,000 homeowner façade grant


Applications are now available for the Noblesville Preservation Alliance Inc. 2012 Homeowner Façade Grant Program. The grant helps homeowners fund exterior restoration work on their homes.

This year, NPA is awarding three matching grants, at a maximum award of $1,000 per homeowner. The deadline for application submission is June 8.

“For more than 25 years, NPA has successfully championed historic preservation, and the Homeowner Façade program is an important way for us to demonstrate that commitment to the community,” said NPA President Charles Hyde. “It will allow families to dream big and tackle some of those exterior home-improvement projects they might not otherwise be able to afford.”

The Homeowner Façade Grant Program is designed to support exterior improvements to residential properties at least 50 years old, and properties located within the Noblesville city limits.  Eligible projects will be required to follow certain preservation parameters.

For more information about the Façade Grant Program, visit or stop by City Hall Room A213 from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday.

Application requests can be made by calling 426-1672, e-mailing or writing to NPA at P.O. Box 632, Noblesville, IN 46061. NPA’s mission is to promote the preservation of historic neighborhoods and resources in order to enhance the quality of life in Noblesville.
