Historic Religious Properties Technical Assistance Workshop

August 1, 2010

Thanks to a successful Challenge Grant Initiative, the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation will be offering its Historic Religious Properties Grant Program again this Fall 2010.

We are offering a technical assistance workshop for congregation leaders, representatives, and guardians of historic religious structures on September 20 at Calvary Episcopal Church in Shadyside.

What Will the One-Day Workshop Be About?

You and others from your congregation will be able to attend seminars and speak with experts in the fields of historic preservation, building project planning and financing, and building construction and maintenance.

Seminar topics will include the following :

  • Preserving historic religious properties;
  • Prioritizing building needs and projects;
  • Planning and organizing building projects;
  • Financing a project and identifying grant and loan sources;
  • Identifying and working with contractors, obtaining bids and estimates, and contracting the work;
  • Repairing, restoring, and maintaining stained glass windows, masonry, roofs and gutters, domes, steeples, and steps; and
  • Making your historic religious properties more energy efficient.

All of the topics that will be discussed will help you in planning and preparing your next PHLF Grant Application.
