The Historic Homeowner grant program awards grants up to $25,000 to homeowners in Capitol Hill, and other select historic districts, for the preservation of their historic residence. Grants are for low and moderate income households.  Parts of Single Member Districts 6C01, 6C02, 6C03 and 6C04 include historic districts with eligible homeowners.
