Certified Local Government Grants

Certified Local Governments may use these federal matching grants for local preservation projects. Funding comes from the Historic Preservation Fund, appropriated annually by the U.S. Congress; federal regulations require that the SHPO distribute to CLGs at least 10 percent of its allocation each year. Approximately $95,000 is available for fiscal year 2018.

Projects may include (see manual for more information):

  • Historic resource surveys.
  • Preparation of local/national designation forms.
  • Historic preservation plans.
  • Building reuse studies.
  • Cultural landscape inventories.
  • Design guidelines for property owners.
  • Public education.

CLG grants DO NOT fund: Capital improvement ("bricks and mortar") projects.

Priority will be given to projects that:

  • reflect goals and strategies of the statewide preservation plan.
  • promote sound preservation planning through historic context development and completion of historic and archaeological surveys.
  • result in local designations.
  • involve properties associated with the history of underdocumented groups or communities.
