|National Park Service Historic Preservation Grants go to Indian tribes, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Groups
WASHINGTON – National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis today announced more than $645,000 in historic preservation grants to 17 American Indian tribes, Alaskan Natives and Native Hawaiian organizations.
“These grants will be used to help preserve the rich heritage of human experience from architectural and intellectual achievements to cultural identities,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “Whether used to create oral history programs, operate museums and cultural centers, or develop training and education programs, the grants will help all Americans can gain a greater appreciation of our nation’s rich traditions and cultures.”
The competitive grants can be used to fund projects such as nominations to the National Register of Historic Places, preservation education, architectural planning, historic structure reports, community preservation plans, and bricks-and-mortar repair to buildings.
Congress provides these grant appropriations each year with revenue from Federal oil leases on the Outer Continental Shelf. The National Park Service administers the grants through the Historic Preservation Fund. This year’s appropriation was decreased by about five percent as a result of sequestration.
