Historic Preservation Fund Grants Manual Revision
This project will update and revise the 2007 edition of the Historic Preservation Fund Grants Manual, the primary guidance document for the administrative and programmatic requirements of grants awarded by and through the Historic Preservation Fund.
The State, Tribal, and Local Plans & Grants Division is part of the Cultural Resources, Partnerships and Science Directorate of the Washington headquarters office of the National Park Service. The Directorate has the responsibility of identifying, documenting, and preserving the irreplaceable resources that commemorate and illuminate the stories of our nation. The State, Tribal, and Local Plans & Grants Division administers a number of programs that support historic preservation activities in every state, territory, and the District of Columbia through grants and technical assistance.
The Historic Preservation Fund, administered by the National Park Service, was established in 1977 as a source of preservation assistance and is wholly supported by Outer Continental Shelf oil lease revenues, not tax dollars. Grants from the fund are awarded each year to State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices to support the national preservation program as prescribed by the National Historic Preservation Act. Additionally, the State, Tribal, and Local Plans & Grants Division administers grants awarded to entities including local governments, non-profits, educational institutions, Native Americans, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiian Organizations through additional grant programs, as enacted by Congress
The present manual revision intends to: provide additional guidance to states, tribes, and eligible private-sector grant recipients; and update manual content to reflect new laws and policies.
The primary audience for the manual includes state, tribal, and local government agencies, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, and other eligible grant recipients.
