National Park Service Awards $1.3 Million in Preserve America Grants Projects in 16 States
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Preserve America Grants Projects, National Park Service, funding
Contributed By: National Park Service

WASHINGTON— National Park Service (NPS) Director Jon Jarvis and Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) Chairman Wayne Donaldson, today announced $1.3 million in Preserve America grants to 22 projects in 16 states.

“Preserve America grants provide an effective means of promoting and encouraging community efforts to preserve our nation’s cultural and natural heritage,” said Jarvis. “These local programs strengthen regional identities, heritage tourism and increase participation in the preservation process.”

Among the projects funded are: King County Heritage Barn Guide, Seattle, WA; Producing a Heritage Design Plan for Baltimore’s Carroll Park, Baltimore, MD; Austin Historical Survey Web Tool, Austin, TX; Edmonds Downtown Cultural Heritage Tour, Edmonds, WA; Montana Community Revitalization Project: Heritage Planning for the New Decade, Helena, MT; Rural Heritage Survey Phase III, Development of Farmstead Heritage Websites, Frankfort, KY; and Preserve Little Italy, San Diego, CA. More information on Preserve America, including the complete list of grant recipients, criteria, and application forms can be found at: http://www.nps.gov/history/hps/hpg/PreserveAmerica/index.htm.

The Preserve America grant program is administered by the Department of the Interior’s National Park Service in partnership with the ACHP. The competitive matching grants fund Preserve America Communities, State Historic Preservation Offices, and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices to support their preservation efforts through heritage tourism, education and historic preservation planning.

Today’s announcement is for the second round of Preserve America grants awarded in 2010; earlier this year the National Park Service awarded grants totaling $2.9 million to support 31 preservation projects in 17 states.

Since 2006, over $21 million in Preserve America Grants have been awarded to 280 projects in 49 states. In all, the National Park Service has received 721 applications requesting more than $56.5 million. Each project requires a 50/50 match leveraging over $44 million for heritage tourism and related work at the local level.
