Project Support Services
The Colorado Historical Foundation specializes in historic preservation and facilitating project efforts including technical assistance, team development, research and financing strategy - all for the success of your project and preservation of your historic resource. Whether you're 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... we've been there and we can help.
We are always eager to explore a new idea, discuss work in progress, and meet others passionate about history and historic preservation. After consulting with us, if you decide to partner with the Foundation in support of your project, we generally base our compensation on estimated hourly involvement and can often work our services into an overall project or grant budget. Please contact Director of Preservation Programs Cindy Nasky at 303.894.2503
From start to finish
We work throughout Colorado to provide private parties, nonprofit organizations and public entities with the project support they need. Efficient project development, grant writing and management take time - our expertise can make the process more enjoyable and give you peace-of-mind.
Although many organizations and people have the vision, knowledge and passion for impactful historic preservation projects, not all have the bandwidth to see a project through fruition. That's where we come in. The Foundation's professional staff have extensive preservation expertise, as well as strong track records in project visioning, planning, implementation and funding strategies, especially related to historic preservation and history projects. Our services include:
- Scope of work and budget development
- Grant writing and editing
- Project management, including team and vendor 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
- Historical and architectural research and documentation
