      Anyone know how to get grants?

      Specifically to rehab a set of rowhouses in my neighborhood that have been on and off the market of about 6 years now and it's most recent listing was for $3500 and I can potentially buy it for $1 because it's owned by the city.



      (original size photo - huge)

      I've got construction and rehab experience and have friends that would be willing to help and rent it from me when it's done.

      It's a beautiful building and I don't want to see another building in my city be demolished due to lack of care.

      It's most recent owner tried making each house(there's 4, if you couldn't tell) into duplexes for a total of 8 units, but I'd want to bring it back to the original 4 units. I'd probably end up living in one with a few close friends and renting out the rest.

      That would be so cool, what an interesting looking place!

      I don't know if this still works or not, since it pre-dates internet, but waaaaay back in the day when you needed information on grants/loans/scholarships/etc, you could go to a library and ask the librarian, who would point you to big books of grant information. Most of them were centered around grants for college of course, but they might list other kinds.

      You can search the internet, but I'd honestly not know where to even begin. It helps if you can ask actual people: librarians, lawyers, members of the city council AND planning commissions (planning commissions have more say in matters that concern what a building is zoned for and what it can/cannot do etc).

      Where do you live by the way? If you live in a really really small town and no one seems to know anything, you can always write members of city councils in major cities and get the information from them. At least it's a starting place.

      Good luck with it! I would so live in a place like that (post rebuilding, naturally )
