Grant Writing + Administration

This page is under construction. Please check back for active links to projects.

Funding is always the most challenging part of working with an older or historic building. Nevada Preservation can assist with locating grants opportunities that fit your project. We can provide any level of assistance you require, from simple grant identification to grant writing as well as grant administration. We have decades of grant writing experience and love to help owners of historic resources find that path to project completion.

We also provide some fundraising assistance in conjunction with historic preservation grant work. Please contact Heidi at Heidi.Swank@NevadaPreservation.org or (855) 968-3973, Ext. 701 or Suzey at Suzey@NevadaPreservation.org or Ext. 704 for information on grants and fundraising for your historic resource.

Taylor's work emerged out of the Modernism movement from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This movement began in Europe and became intertwined with the desire for healthy buildings due to the tuberculosis pandemic. Sanatoriums became locations for tuberculosis patients to recuperate from the disease. They were designed with large windows to allow plentiful sunlight, flat roofs for expanded outdoor space, and little ornamentation for easier cleaning. These became defining elements in the Modernist drive for healthier homes for all.       More well known modernist architects and their intersection with healthy buildings has been well-explored. As Nevada Preservation got to know Mr. Taylor and his work, we became increasingly interested in how his desire to create healthy buildings for regular, working-class people had been left out of conversations around Modernism.       Over the last four years, we have stabilized the archive, catalogued it using museum software, and created ways that the public and researchers can see his work through our website. We are now looking to 2021 to fully bring Hugh's work to the public through the development of an interactive app that will - if activated - alert users when they are near a Taylor building. It will provide information on the building and demonstrate how even architects like Taylor, who did not achieve great national fame, were working to implement Modernist elements to create healthy, comfortable homes for regular families.
