Preserve New York

The New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and Preservation League of New York State (PLNYS), with additional support from The Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation, are pleased to offer the 2018 Preserve New York (PNY) Grant Program. Preserve New York supports historic structure reports, building condition reports, cultural landscape reports, and cultural resource surveys.

Eligible projects may include but not be limited to: a historic structure report for a historic site; a building condition report for a local library; a cultural landscape report for an Olmsted-designed park; or a cultural resource survey of a downtown or residential neighborhood.

Thanks to the generous support and partnership with The Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation, Preserve New York has additional funding for applications from Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

The Preservation League invests in people and projects that champion the essential role of preservation in community revitalization, sustainable economic growth, and the protection of our historic buildings and landscapes.
