Owners of historic buildings in southern Illinois commercial areas are encouraged to apply for funding through the Landmarks Illinois Banterra Bank Preserve Southern Illinois Grant Program.

The grant program provides money to commercial property owners, nonprofit organizations or governmental bodies working to preserve or rehabilitate historic structures in downtowns and other areas to support economic development.

Projects should be located in the State of Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Development Southern Region, which contains the southern 19 counties.

Grants through the program are awarded on a matching basis and range from $500 to $2,500, each based on project need.

Grant applications for the next round of funding through the program are due by July 1.
