A while back, we visited the bank to discuss our house, mortgage etc. We had a fantastic conversation with our representative, who started asking questions about our house. It turned out that she too had an old house that was in a constant state of repair, and she understood the costs involved therein. We learned that she was a member of the Heritage Committee, and they were always awarding grants to help maintain designated homes of historical significance. She suggested that we apply, that they were always looking for worthwhile projects. We concluded our discussions, agreeing that it would be nice to be awarded some grant money, but thought nothing more of it.
