Historic Preservation Fund Grants (15.904)

Program provides matching grants to states for the identification, evaluation, and protection of historic properties by such means as survey, planning technical assistance, acquisition, development, and certain federal tax incentives available for historic properties. Major reconstruction is not eligible.

Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) grants are awarded annually based on an apportionment formula. The National Park Service and SHPOs, along with the Certified Local Governments form provide the structure for preservation efforts to be connected on the national, state, and local levels. This includes the required minimum 10% pass-through of the HPF grant funds to directly support local preservation projects and providing preservation training and guidance. NPS consults with the SHPOs on all preservation projects through the Section 106 process outlined in the National Historic Preservation Act.
