Historic Preservation MicroLoan Fund
The Historic Preservation Microloan Program exists to preserve West Virginia’s architectural heritage and stimulate community revitalization through advocacy, lending, technical assistance, and development in historic areas in the state of West Virginia.
Loan amounts can be up to $20,000. There is a 2% interest rate on loans issued by PAWV. All work must be completed between 24-60 months of the loan issue date, and loans are to be paid back within that 24-60 month period.
Loan applications are accepted on a rolling basis. All applicants must submit a $100 non-refundable application fee.
