Grants supported by the Historic Preservation Fund

 

WASHINGTON – The National Park Service (NPS) today announced the distribution of $49.6 million in historic preservation grants for U.S. states, territories, and partnering nations, and $11.7 million in historic preservation grants to 183 tribal historic preservation offices.

“The National Park Service is committed to telling a more complete and diverse story of America’s history. Historic preservation grants like these, with the support of our state, tribal, and local partners, ensure the continuance of our nation’s significant historic and cultural places by improving or conserving infrastructure or education programs and outreach,” said National Park Service Deputy Director P. Daniel Smith.

Administered by the National Park Service, these funds are appropriated annually by Congress from the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF). Since its inception in 1977, the HPF has provided more than $1.9 billion in historic preservation grants to States, Tribes, local governments, and non-profit organizations. Authorized at $150 million per year, the Historic Preservation Fund is supported by Outer Continental Shelf oil lease revenues, not tax dollars, with intent to mitigate the loss of a non-renewable resource to benefit the preservation of other irreplaceable resources.

Preservation in Action

State and Local Preservation

The HPF grants fund preservation programs at state offices and ensure support of local preservation with a required 10% pass through to Certified Local Governments via competitive subgrants. Examples of the diversity of work accomplished with this annual funding include:

  • In Maryland, Anne Arundel County recently completed construction of a new boat access facility at the historic Fort Smallwood Park, using U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service funds. Section 106 consultation among these federal, state and local government partners enabled the County to complete stabilization, mothballing, and design for reuse of the Park’s historic 1932-concession stand that had been vacant for years and badly damaged by Hurricane Isabel in 2003.

  • In Kentucky, the City of Horse Cave (a Certified Local Government since 2003) developed presentations for fourth graders about the community’s history and how historic preservation helps to retain the town’s identity. The education curriculum introduced students to the relationship between the natural and built environment, typical local architectural features, and balancing community needs with historic resources.

  • In December 2017, Tribal Historic Preservation Offices who work with the State Historic Preservation Office convened a summit at Graton Rancheria in Santa Rosa, California, to discuss responses to and recovery from disasters. Federal and state agencies were invited to make presentations and the summit ended with a session on registering properties for listing in the National Register as a means to identify them and make them potentially eligible for pre- and post-disaster federal funding.

Tribal Preservation

The HPF grants fund tribal preservation programs, assists Tribes in the preservation of their cultural heritage, and promotes the protection of historically significant sites. Examples of the diversity of work accomplished with this annual funding include:

  • The Wiyot Tribe worked with the California Highway Patrol provided outreach and education about Wiyot history and heritage in order to improve intercultural communication, sensitivity, and etiquette to officers.

  • Also in California, Elk Valley Rancheria organizes an Annual Cultural Day event attended by tribal members and their families. Demonstrations include basket weaving, sand bread preparation, and a traditional salmon bank. The THPO also assisted Redwood National Park in training seasonal employees by educating them about Tolowa culture.

State and Local Preservation Grants

All funding to the States and the District of Columbia requires a 40% non-federal match, which leverages state, local and private dollars to do even more with the federal HPF investment.
