- State-funded Historic Preservation Grant Program helps municipalities and non-profit organizations rehabilitate the historic buildings that are a vital part of Vermont’s downtowns, villages, and rural communities, as well as its iconic landscape.
- Since its inception, the program has provided almost $5 million towards the preservation of over 550 historic community buildings. Grants have been used to revitalize buildings such as town halls, museums, theaters, libraries, recreation centers, and other municipal buildings.
- Vermont Division of Historic Preservation, Grants Coordinator, Caitlin Corkins, for the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development is encouraging Clarendon Heritage to apply for a matching grant. This means that the community and/or potential sponsors need to come forward to make it possible.

North Clarendon Chapel has received a Robert Sincerbeaux Fund (RSF) Condition Assessment matching Grant managed by the Preservation Trust of Vermont. RSF grants are used to hire a preservation contractor or architect to evaluate the condition of a historic building and make recommendations for its care. The consultant will prepare a report that prioritizes repairs and gives rough cost estimates so the Friends of the North Clarendon Chapel can plan fundraising strategies. Preservation Advisor, Peter Coppola, and architect Tom Keefe will be conducting an assessment of the building to see if it can be restored for community activities in the future.
