Interior and National Park Service Announce more than $60 Million in Historic Preservation Grants to States and Tribes

Offshore Drilling Funds Directed to Help Protect U.S. and Tribal Historic Places, Culture and Traditions

 

WASHINGTON - May 29, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) The U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Park Service (NPS) today announced $48.9 million in historic preservation grants for U.S. states, territories, and partnering nations, and $11.4 million for historic preservation grants to 175 tribal historic preservation offices.

"The Department of the Interior and the National Park Service are committed to preserving U.S. and tribal history and heritage," said U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. "Fees collected from drilling on the Outer Continental Shelf help fund important conservation tools like these grants. Through valuable partnerships we are able to assist communities and tribes in ensuring the diverse historic places, culture and traditions that make our country unique are protected for future generations."

Administered by the National Park Service, these funds are appropriated annually by Congress from the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF). Since its inception in 1977, the HPF has provided more than$1.8 billion in grants to states, tribes, local governments, and non-profit organizations. Funding is supported by Outer Continental Shelf oil lease revenues, not tax dollars, with intent to mitigate the loss of a non-renewable resource to benefit the preservation of other irreplaceable resources.

"The National Park Service works closely with states and tribes to preserve our nation’s diverse history and cultural heritage," National Park Service Deputy Director Dan Smith said. "These grants help promote historic preservation at the community level, including funding much needed restoration and maintenance to these special places."

The HPF grants fund preservation programs at state offices and ensure support of local preservation with a required 10% pass-through to Certified Local Governments via competitive subgrants. Examples of state and local work accomplished with this annual funding include:

The HPF grants fund tribal preservation programs and assist Tribes in the preservation of their cultural heritage and promote the protection of historically significant sites. Examples of tribal efforts and accomplishments with this annual funding include:
