State of North Carolina and Subgrant Projects
Utilizing Federal Emergency Supplemental Historic Preservation Fund dollars for Hurricanes Florence and Michael
The North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office invites you to comment on federally-funded projects to provide recovery assistance for historic properties (including archaeological sites) damaged by hurricanes Florence and/or Michael that are listed or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
Funding from the congressionally appropriated Emergency Supplemental Historic Preservation Fund (ESHPF) administered by the National Park Service (NPS) allows the State Historic Preservation Office (HPO) to provide funding for projects tied to historic properties in those counties that FEMA declared eligible for federal disaster funding. The program is designed to address historic property needs unmet through other funding sources (FEMA, insurance, etc.).
The federal grant establishing this program comes from the $47.8 million appropriated by Congress through the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) for assistance to communities impacted by hurricanes Florence, Michael and Typhoon Yutu. The HPF uses revenue from federal oil and gas leases on the Outer Continental Shelf, providing assistance for a broad range of preservation projects without expending tax dollars.
Federal agencies are required to consider the effects of their work on historic properties under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. This request for public comment supports these Section 106 activities. We are seeking comments from those with an interest in the historic resources within the affected disaster areas that are included in the program.
Comments are due no later than February 27, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
