The purpose of the Historic Building Preservation Grant Program is to provide incentives in the form of matching grants to encourage the renovation and rehabilitation of historic buildings based on the Secretary of the Interior's Standards in redevelopment areas.
Any buildings (residential or commercial) individually listed on the City of Daytona Beach Local Historic Register or a contributing structure to a designated local historic district within any of the redevelopment areas are eligible to apply for assistance.
In general, the intent of the grant is for visible improvements to the exterior façade of the historic structure or to assist with improvements to the building to ensure its economic viability by meeting applicable building codes. This includes:
Eligible projects may receive awards of up to 25% of the total project cost with no single grant exceeding $75,000. Grants for commercial project may be applied for one time.
Eligible projects may receive awards of up to 50% of the total project cost with no single grant exceeding $15,000.
