Grants from Foundations
In January 2022, Norwalk Preservation Trust was awarded a Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant from Connecticut Humanities. These funds are being used to enhance our community-building efforts online, including the production of two high-quality video tours of historic homes in Norwalk, to be released at a festive event this Fall. More details soon!
The launch of this web site in 2008 was made possible by a generous and timely grant from the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation, now known as Preservation Connecticut.
