Homeowner Façade Grant Program

To date NPA has awarded 29 façade grants totaling $23,000

The Homeowner Façade Grant Program is designed to support Noblesville homeowners in the thoughtful restoration of historic residential properties. Exterior improvements to homes that are at least 50 years old, and are located within Noblesville city limits, will qualify. Other buildings or exterior features that are at least 50 years old are also eligible.

Homeowners are encouraged, wherever possible, to make improvements that restore the structure's original character. NPA will assist in identifying those features, when requested. Historic preservation requires research, attention to detail, and frequently, special skill sets. This program is intended to provide both financial and professional support, which ultimately will contribute to Noblesville's character and community.

Matching Grants

NPA contributes 50% of the total project cost, up to $1,000, for eligible exterior façade improvements.

The maximum grant award will be $1,000 for homeowners whose projects cost under $10,000. For projects costing more than $10,000, NPA will consider an increased grant award up to $2,000 for exemplary projects, if funds are available. The Façade Grant committee will discuss the possibility for an increased award amount with eligible applicants. All matching grants are distributed as reimbursement, once NPA receives copies of third party receipts and inspects the completed project. Grant awards must be spent by December 31st of the current year. 

Seed Grants

Seed grants provide funding, up to $500 per homeowner, to complete exterior façade improvements.

Seed grants do not require a homeowner match. Grants will be distributed as reimbursement, once NPA receives copies of third party receipts and inspects the completed project. Grant awards must be spent by December 31st of the current year.
