Historic Preservation Fund Apportionment to States
Funding has been apportioned using a formula grant process to states since federal fiscal year 1967. Beginning in fiscal year 1977, the source of this funding was the newly created Historic Preservation Fund. Although the Historic Preservation Fund is authorized at $150 million annually, it is only funded by congressional appropriation. This appropriation is the actual amount of money Congress permits NPS to award as grants.
Notes on This DataUsers of this data are reminded that federal fiscal year 1976 included a fifth quarter to serve as a three-month transition period that moved the end of the fiscal year to September 30.
In addition, the data are broken down by recipient. When the Trust Territory of the Pacific ceased to exist, the independent republics of the Freely Associated States (Palau, Marshall Islands, and the Federated States of Micronesia) were eligible for and began to receive HPF grants previously awarded to the Trust Territory.
