CHEYENNE – Architecture assistance is being made available to historic properties in downtown Cheyenne through Wyoming Main Street, according to a Wyoming Business Council news release.

Historical and commercial buildings in traditional downtown districts can submit a pre-application to see if they’re eligible for the Historic Architecture Assistance Fund. The pre-application is due Sept. 1, and the final application is due Oct. 15.

If people receive the funds, an architect will work with the applicant to typically do a building assessment structural analysis, analysis of the building code, American Disability Act requirements, façade and signage schematic design.

The funding is designed to help owners in historic preservation of their properties. The funding doesn’t help with repairs, building materials or contractor work.

Wyoming Main Street is a section of the Wyoming Business Council and helps community revitalization efforts through technical assistance and funding.
