Monday Morning Coffee Talk with Karen Ansis
New York Landmarks Conservancy Neighborhood Preservation Programs

Maintaining and restoring historic buildings is crucial to preserving our neighborhoods for the future. Come to HDC’s December Coffee Talk and learn about the various financial and project management assistance programs available through The New York Landmarks Conservancy to assist individuals, businesses and non-profits in this effort.

Karen Ansis, who manages the Conservancy’s revolving loan fund for restoration work on all types of buildings, as well as grant programs for non-profit organizations, will explain her organization’s neighborhood preservation initiatives. Karen will discuss the guidelines for each program, application procedures, how low-interest loans work, and other types of assistance available. She will also highlight some of the successful projects they have recently completed. Come join us and learn if you might qualify for assistance to restore your historic property!

This event is FREE to the public. Reservations are required, as space is limited. For more information, please contact Lauren Belfer, HDC’s community coordinator, at (212) 614-9107 or

Also, please contact Rego-Forest Preservation Council Chairman Michael Perlman if you are interested in attending &/or learning more about preservation funding programs for property owners:  After gathering parties of interest, information will be communicated to the appropriate parties.

The Neighborhood Partners Program is sponsored, in part, by Deutsche Bank, Lily Auchincloss Foundation, Assembly Members Jonathan L. Bing, Deborah J. Glick, Richard N. Gottfried and Daniel J. O’Donnell, and State Senators Thomas K. Duane, Liz Krueger & Diane J. Savino.
