Trio of grants support efforts for 19th Ward

Three grants totaling $33,000 will support efforts to nominate four areas in Rochester’s 19th Ward for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, officials announced Monday.

The 19th Ward Community Association received $18,000 from the Rochester Area Community Foundation.

“Historic district designations throughout the neighborhood will strengthen the entire community,” association President LaShay Harris said in a statement.

The Landmark Society of Western New York Inc. received $10,000 from the Preservation League of New York State and $5,000 from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The listing would allow qualified homeowners to apply for New York State Historic Homeowner Tax Credits for a range of home repairs that meet specific criteria, officials said.

More than 22,000 live in the 19th Ward, the largest residential community in the city, officials said.

“The 19th Ward is not only a vibrant neighborhood, but one that includes important historic architecture,” the Landmark Society’s executive director Wayne Goodman said in the statement.
