Upland Heritage

Preserving the past


UPLAND HERITAGE is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging the appreciation and maintenance of structures built within the Upland community before 1966. Proceeds from the Upland Heritage biannual Vintage Home Tours and the annual Concerts under the Stars fund this Grant Program to aid and support owners of historic homes that are 50 years old and older.

Upland Heritage is pleased to announce that a total of $5000 will be awarded towards the 2017 Restoration Grants.  Grants, up to a maximum of $1000 each will be awarded for up to 50% of the restoration or repair cost on each selected project. Since grants are awarded on a matching funds basis, this equates to well over $164,000 invested back into Uplands’ historical structures since the program began 19 years ago.
