National Park Service Historic Preservation Grants Mean More Than $21 million for Projects in States and Territories

WASHINGTON – National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis today announced $21.6 million in historic preservation grants to help states and territories preserve and protect historic sites.

“These historic preservation grant programs help states and territories tell the stories of their people and places, promote heritage tourism, preserve state and local historic sites, and provide a boost to local economies,” Jarvis said. 

State officials may use the grants to fund projects ranging from the survey and inventory of historic properties, National Register of Historic Places nominations, preservation education, architectural planning, historic structures reports, community preservation planning, and bricks-and-mortar repair to buildings.  Examples of projects funded by grants in 2012 include:
  • In Vermont, the state is acquiring the Daisy Turner Homestead, an African American homestead established in 1873 by former slave and Civil War veteran Alexander Turner.  The state’s historic preservation office is using the grant to help the state’s natural resources agency understand how to manage the cultural resources on the property and open it to the public for interpretation of this rare story in their state.

  • With assistance from a Historic Preservation Fund grant, the Washington State Historic Preservation Office planned and executed the state’s first Latino Youth Summit to help young Latino students recognize the need to preserve places associated with their heritage. Participants from around the state interacted with and learned about the Latino heritage of the Yakima Valley and nearby Mount Rainier National Park, then presented recommendations on preservation and promotion of these and other Latino sites to a panel of community leaders, government officials and educators. 
The Historic Preservation Fund is derived by revenue from federal oil leases on the Outer Continental Shelf. The National Park Service administers the fund and distributes annual matching grants to state and tribal historic preservation officers from money made available in Congressional appropriations. This year’s appropriation was decreased by about five percent as a result of sequestration.  

Also today, more $3.7 million was distributed to Tribal Historic Preservation Offices to help American Indian tribes in carrying out national historic preservation program responsibilities on tribal lands.
