Historic Preservation Fund

Every year, the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) awards grant funds from the state’s annual Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) award. Grants can support public education, surveys, planning, archaeological investigations, and building rehabilitation. Applicants must be either a governmental agency or a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Private property owners are not eligible. Resources must be listed in the National Register of Historic Places to be eligible for grant-assisted rehabilitation projects. Due to limited funds, the grant award process and the subsequent application review is very competitive.

Grants can support public education, surveys, planning, archaeological investigations, and building restoration. Applicants must be either a governmental agency or a non-profit organization. Private property owners are not eligible. Buildings must be listed in the National Register of Historic Places to be eligible. The grant funds are supplied by the National Park Service (NPS) and come from off-shore oil and gas lease fees.
