PHLF will be holding a Technical Assistance Workshop for guardians of historic religious properties on Friday, September 21, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at Calvary Episcopal Church in Shadyside. Lunch will be provided.
This workshop will have a new “twist” from those in 2008 and 2010. It will be peer-generated: the focus will be on building a network of congregation members and religious leaders who are committed to restoring their historic religious structures and learning from each other as well as from experts in the construction field.
Participants will be able to ask questions and discuss ideas about selecting and working with a contractor, raising matching funds, and undertaking critical exterior work on their historic religious property.
In addition, PHLF staff will guide participants through the process of applying for an HRP matching grant. By the end of the workshop, participants who want to apply to PHLF for a matching grant or technical assistance in 2013 will have completed about 75% of their application. The application deadline for PHLF’s 2013 HRP program is November 30, 2012.
We encourage you to attend the workshop if:
- you are a religious leader or member of a congregation that needs matching funds to undertake an exterior project, roofing, gutter work, masonry repairs, or stained glass window restoration;
- you want to connect with others who have had experience with PHLF’s HRP program and have successfully undertaken critical building improvements;
- you want to know how to begin prioritizing your building needs and involving your congregation in raising funds to maintain and restore its place of worship.
Registration is free. Advance reservations are required and MUST be received by September 5. The workshop is limited to 80 people.
Please contact Carole Malakoff, HRP Coordinator, before September 5, to let her know how many people from your congregation will attend. (Up to 3 members from any one congregation can register.) Help us make this workshop a success by registering today!
