Historic Preservation Fund grants for CLGs

HPF grants for Certified Local Governments

The Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) Grant program is appropriated annually from Congress through the National Park Service to the states. HPD reserves 10 percent of each year's appropriation for grants to Certified Local Governments (CLGs) . The 60/40 matching grants enable cities, towns, and rural areas to undertake projects that aid in the preservation of historic properties.  See the Historic Preservation Fund Grant fact sheet.
