FOR DWIGHT HOMEOWNERS

Dear Neighbor,

Your home is part of the Dwight Street National Historic District.  We are volunteers interested in sharing information with our neighbors about resources that can help to maintain our homes in this historic neighborhood.  We bought our houses because the price was right.  It can be a challenge to fix up a historic house.  However, there are resources that can help.  We are providing some information here. If you need help to apply for loans or grants, or if you are not sure what to do first, or where to find people with the skills to care for your historic homes, help is available. We have asked the following organizations to join with us to be sure that you can get the help you need to keep up with repairs that your house may need:  the New Haven Preservation Trust, Neighborhood Housing Services of New Haven, and the Community Action Agency of New Haven.  
Feel free to use the resources listed.  If you have questions email FriendsofDwight@gmail.com  We will follow up.

--- Olivia Martson, Chairperson. Pat Wallace, project coordinator.

Repair Advice and Skilled Repair Help

Most licensed trades people have the skills to do most of the work you need to have done to maintain your home.  However, work on historic homes can require knowledge and skills that not everyone has.  If you are not sure what to do or who to hire, the New Haven Preservation Trust can help with a free consultation.  NHS of New Haven can also assist you to connect with local carpenters, plumbers, electricians.
