National Park Service Announces $4.1 million in Tribal Historic Preservation Grants
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Park Service

WASHINGTON – National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis today announced the apportionment of more than $4.1 million in grants to 135 American Indian tribes to support Tribal Historic Preservation Offices under the National Historic Preservation Act. The National Park Service awards grants to these tribes to assist in carrying out national historic preservation program responsibilities on tribal lands. 

“The participation of American Indians in the national historic preservation program is highly significant in the evolution of this important nationwide effort,” Director Jarvis said. “Increased attention to the preservation of significant Tribal places, as well as Tribal culture and tradition, is important to all Americans and this grant program provides much needed funding to protect the cultures of America’s first peoples.” 

Tribes can use the grants to fund projects such as nominations to the National Register of Historic Places, preservation education, architectural planning, historic structure reports, community preservation plans, and bricks-and-mortar repair to buildings. The grants are derived from revenues from federal oil leases on the Outer Continental Shelf and can help catalyze private and non-federal investment in historic preservation efforts nationwide.
