Historic Preservation Fund Subgrant FY19 Round #2

Every year, the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) awards subgrants from the state’s annual Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) award.  Due to limited federal funds in FY19, these subgrants are only available to Certified Local Governments (CLG).  In addition, the subgrant award process is very competitive. 

There will be $80,000.00 in funding available for this grant round.  Applications for Round #2 are now available. Applications are due in the office by close of business or post-marked on October 31, 2019 . Following a public meeting, grants will likely be awarded on November 20, 2019.
