    State, Tribal, and Local Plans & Grants

    Cultural Resources National Park Service

The State, Tribal, and Local Plans & Grants(STLPG) division provides preservation assistance through a variety of programs. STLPG administers a number of grant programs that preserve America's historic places and diverse history. STLPG develops and delivers technical assistance and guidance in historic preservation to a broad audience, including States, Tribes, local communities and Federal agencies. We ensure compliance with Federal law 36cfr 800 for the protection of historic properties.

Established in 1977, the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) is the source of the preservation grants awarded to States, Tribes, local governments, and non-profits. Authorized at $150 million per year, the funding is provided by Outer Continental Shelf oil lease revenues, not tax dollars. The idea is that the use of one non-renewable resource benefits the preservation of other irreplaceable resources.
