History

The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 authorizes a matching grant program for a variety of preservation activities. Most federal grants have been made to local governments for architectural and archaeological surveys, National Register nominations, and preservation planning. Federal law requires that 10% of the state's apportionment from the federal Historic Preservation Fund be made available on a matching basis to local governments that are designated Certified Local Governments by the National Park Service.
