The Marshall Islands, FSM, and Palau
are independent nations that were temporarily U.S. Trust Territories
after World War II. Their eligiblity to receive HPF frants
is based on the terms of each nation's Compact of Free Association
with the U.S. By law these nations are allowed limited flexibility
in meeting HPF requirements so that they can better address
their unique cultural needs. For example, they can pursue
projects to document and record ethnographic sites, oral history,
and traditional builidng techniques.
Professional standards and guidelines used in HPF funded prgrams
are those of the Secretary of the Interior's Standards and
Guildelines for Archeology and Historic Preservation.
