Preserve America Grants


The Preserve America matching-grant program provides funding to designated Preserve America Communities to support preservation efforts through heritage tourism, education, and historic preservation planning. The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation designates Preserve America Communities and works with the First Lady to present the Preserve America Presidential Awards.

Through these grant projects our country gains a greater shared knowledge about the Nation's past, strengthened regional identities and local pride, increased local participation in preserving the country's cultural and natural heritage assets, and support for the economic vitality of our communities.

The program awarded $21,242,661 to a total of 280 grant projects. Although not currently funded the program is authorized in legislation. Grants were awarded to designated Preserve America Communities and Neighborhoods, State Historic Preservation Offices, Tribal Historic Preservation Offices and Certified Local Governments.
