Just heard this today on KOMO News.
The state is offering matching funds for the refurbishing of historical old barns in Washington.
More details here: KOMO-4 News

I think Friendly Haven Rise Farm participated in a state sponsored program similar to this. Very cool.

Yeah. There is a fund of $500,000 set aside for this.
With 50:50 matching funds, some people could do a proper job of it.

Applications will be reviewed, and winners will be selected. Being on a 'working farm' tips the balance in your favor.
It would be wonderful to see some of these 'classics' restored.
