National Park Service and Partner Agencies Announce $15.5 Million in Save America’s Treasures Grants

The National Park Service (NPS) in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) today announced $15.5 million in Save America’s Treasures grants, through the Historic Preservation Fund, to fund 49 projects in 29 states that will preserve nationally significant sites and collections.

“These grants enable educational institutions, museums, states, tribes, and local governments to preserve nationally significant historic properties and collections for future generations of Americans to experience, learn from, and enjoy,” said NPS Deputy Director Shawn Benge.

From 1999 to 2019, Save America’s Treasures has provided over $339 million to more than 1,300 projects to provide preservation and conservation work on nationally significant collections, artifacts, structures and sites. Requiring a dollar-for-dollar private match, these grants have leveraged more than $479 million in private investment and contributed more than 16,000 jobs to local and state economies.

The program requires applicants to match the grant money dollar for dollar with nonfederal funding. This award of $15,520,000 million will leverage more than $20 million in private and public investment. Buildings and collections which have previously received Save America’s Treasures grants are not eligible to receive a second grant for the same project.

Established in 1977, the HPF is authorized at $150 million per year through 2023 and has provided more than $2 billion in historic preservation grants to states, tribes, local governments, and non-profit organizations. Administered by the NPS, HPF funds may be appropriated by Congress to support a variety of historic preservation projects to help preserve the nation’s cultural resources and history.
