Finding resources to preserve historic buildings in Utah is possible through a variety of loans and grants. Utah Heritage Foundation, a non-profit statewide historic preservation advocacy organization, offers an array of real estate programs that can benefit an owner financially. To qualify, a property must be at least 50 years old and retain its architectural integrity. Approval of loan applications is based on a number of criteria, including the historic appropriateness of the proposed renovation and availability of loan funds.
