Historic Preservation Grant


50/50 matching grant program for Locally Designated Homes


Dear Historic Property Owner;

Congratulations on choosing to own an historic property in Oregon City. As a historic property owner, you have been given the opportunity to help preserve a part of Oregon’s history. Until now, historic owners have had little support in maintaining or repairing their buildings. The Historic Review Board and the City of Oregon City recognize that with local historic designation should come some amount of assistance.

Attached you will find the grant application packet, which describes the process, as well as a description of projects that are eligible for grant approval.  You may phase your project- each grant award is limited to $1,000 dollars.  The Historic Review Board may also choose to grant additional funds at the end of the fiscal year if there is money remaining in the grant budget.

The Board reviews applications on the fourth Tuesday of each month at their regularly scheduled board meeting  (City Hall Commission Chambers -7:00 PM). Complete applications received by the 2nd Monday of each month can be processed during that same month. Applicants should attend the meeting to respond to any questions.


What Does The Grant Pay For?

  • Window Repair
  • Wood Storm Windows
  • Replacement of Non-Historic Windows
  • Porch/Roof/Foundation Repair
  • Replacement of Missing Elements
