We are looking to buy a historic commercial building and restore it for our primary residence. Having been a historic home owner we are aware of some low interest loans for the home we purchased 8 years ago. Is there any special funding or grants available that maybe help us to restore this building that would not have to be paid back? We plan to purchase and put a lot of our own money into it for restoration, but the building has been vacant for over 30 years and needs stabilization, roof, and windows, and other major repairs. As it sits now, there are no windows and some major cracks in the building itself. No heating, plumbing, or much else for that matter. The building is on the state historic register. Can anyone help me find funds or advise me on where to look?
