PRESERVATION PROJECT SUPPORT
Whether you're researching and documenting historic sites, rehabilitating an historic building, shoring up a deteriorating structure, seeking historical designation on a property, procuring construction documents, piecing together funding sources, conducting an impact study or needs analysis - the Colorado Historical Foundation can help.
We understand that you have the vision, knowledge, and passion needed for an impactful historic preservation project. However, you may not have the bandwidth to manage all your project’s components.
Our project support services include:
- Scope of work and budget development
- Grant writing and editing
- Project and research management, including team recommendations, vendor/contractor coordination, budget tracking, and grant reporting
- Technical assistance to ensure projects adhere to the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Buildings
- Historical designation research, nomination, and assistance
- Managing historical and architectural research and documentation
- Custodial fund administration
We are always eager to meet and explore new ideas, discuss work in progress, and meet others passionate about history and historic preservation. If you decide to partner with the Foundation, we generally base our compensation on estimated time involved and can often work our services into an overall project or grant budget.
