Connecticut Trust For Historic Preservation

Connecticut Circuit Rider Program

THE CONNECTICUT CIRCUIT RIDER PROGRAM: A Partnership program with the Connecticut State Historic Preservation Office


The Connecticut Circuit Rider program is generously funded by the State Historic Preservation Office, DECD, through the Community Investment Act. Circuit Riders work with many statewide and national preservation organizations to provide the widest range of tools to individuals and communities across Connecticut through investigative visits, consultations and meetings.

CT Circuit Riders have experience with financial and economic development incentives, tax credits, State and CT Trust grants, historic districts, local ordinances and much more.

Through investigative visits, consultations and meetings, they:

  • Help to define relevant issues and develop preservation strategies;
  • Offer financial assistance through the Connecticut Trust’s Historic Preservation Technical Assistance Grants and Historic Buildings Financing Fund;
  • And offer training session for local historic district commissions.

The Connecticut Circuit Riders are field officers trained to bring preservation resources to local groups.
