The Keystone Fund is a vital tool for preserving Pennsylvania’s heritage. Keystone Fund grants support projects that identify, preserve, promote, and protect the historic and archaeological resources of Pennsylvania for the benefit of the public and the revitalization of communities. In addition to providing communities with opportunities to preserve important landmarks and historic structures, historic preservation helps them revitalize downtowns, increase tourism, and promote community development.
Since 1993, Keystone Fund historic preservation grants have invested $36 million in over 720 brick-and-mortar projects in 65 counties, leveraging millions of private and public dollars. Grantees ensure they will continue maintenance and preservation of the historic building and ensure public accessibility for at least 15 years after the grant is received.
