In 2022, the City of Sedalia announced it had been awarded a $750,000 National Park Service (NPS) Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grant to support the preservation of the Sedalia Commercial Historic District. The Paul Bruhn Grant Program was created to administer the awarded funds and disburse them to eligible projects to support rehabilitation of contributing structures within the Sedalia Commercial Historic District.
The application and guidelines are now available. Applications for this grant program will be accepted through April 14, 2023.
You can also contact John Simmons at 660-851-7605 to request the application and guidelines. The guidelines contain a listing of eligible properties that you may review to see if your building qualifies for grant funding.
An application workshop will be held Thursday evening at 5:30 p.m. on March 30th at the Municipal Building Council Chambers. This will be an opportunity to review the guidelines and ask questions about the process.
This program is designed to assist property owners of contributing buildings in the Sedalia Commercial Historic District to achieve building stabilization and rehabilitation goals while creating opportunities for new commercial and residential spaces. We anticipate that this grant will help fund several restoration projects while generating significant private investment above the $750,000 grant funding. This investment will create exponentially positive effects on the entire area.
This project is supported through the Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grant Program funded by the Historic Preservation Fund as administered by the National Park Service, Department of Interior. Learn more about the Paul Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants program on NPS.gov.
