National Park Service Awards Historic Preservation Grants to American Indian Tribes, Alaskan Natives, and Native Hawaiian Organizations

WASHINGTON - The National Park Service today announced $524,000 in grants for 12 projects from across the country to support the protection of America’s native cultures. 

Congress appropriates funding for the Tribal Heritage Grant Program through the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF). The HPF uses revenue from federal oil leases on the Outer Continental Shelf, providing assistance for a broad range of preservation projects without expending tax dollars. 

“Through these competitive grants,” said National Park Service Deputy Director Dan Smith, “the National Park Service is able to work with America’s native communities to preserve their cultural heritage and connect people with traditions of the past.” 

From the preservation of a 16th century pueblo and petroglyphs on mesa cliffs in New Mexico, to creating video documentaries of traditional burial practices in Oklahoma, these projects are critical to preserving Tribal heritage for future generations. Other projects funded by these grants will locate and identify cultural resources, preserve historic properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places, support comprehensive preservation planning, preserve oral history and cultural traditions, provide training for building a historic preservation program, and support cultural and historic preservation interpretation and education. 

For more information about the grants and the Tribal Heritage Grant program, please visit http://go.nps.gov/tribalheritage. At least $500,000 in additional funding became available in the winter of 2020.
