Iowa Barn Foundation

Special opportunities grant program  (June 17, 2013)

The Iowa Barn Foundation board has established a special opportunities grant program to help "mothball" a barn until long-term preservation plans can be implemented or to help stabilize a structure because failure to do so will result in a barn's demise.

Funds will be allocated based on the need for timely and appropriate intervention and only to preserve, save, or rescue barns of remarkable distinction such as a one-of-a-kind or last-of-a-kind structure.

In all cases, an owner's long-term plans for the barn will be considered with highest priority given to restoring a structure to its previous function or to restoring a structure for a function that exposes the public to the importance of barns (or of this specific barn) in the region's history.
