Preservation Buffalo Niagara offers a plethora of funding and financial opportunities to help those who seek to protect the historic fabric of Western New York.


Our Easement Program allows PBN to protect properties against demolition and to ensure that they maintain their character in perpetuity to our community.



The East Side Commercial Building Stabilization Fund will help to protect the fabric, density, character, and community on the East Side – making sure that building assets on the East Side that may have current challenges are able to be maintained for prospective future development as mixed-use, retail, and commercial uses, and can help to build up the strong commercial activity already present in areas on the East Side. Applications are due January 15th.


The Historic Home Loan Fund (HHLF) provides financing for the preservation, improvement, restoration, and/or rehabilitation of locally designated homes in the City of Buffalo to low income homeowners.




PBN’s Sacred Spaces Assistance Program (SSAP) provides technical assistance to religious and non-profit organizations to pursue National Register listing as part of their work to preserve and rehabilitate their historic structures.
