Revolving Fund Program – Actively Saving Endangered Buildings
Louisiana Trust’s Revolving Fund Program began in November 2015 and is active in saving endangered historic buildings around the state. We currently have projects in Alexandria and Homer. If you know of an endangered historic building in your area, please let us know.
The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation advocates, promotes and preserves historic places representing our diverse culture.
The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation was founded in 1979 for cultural and educational purposes pertaining to historic preservation. The Founders understood that an organized state-wide network of preservationists was a critical component to promote the preservation of the diverse culture and historic resources of Louisiana through education, technical assistance, outreach and advocacy. The Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation is the statewide partner of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
