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.

Starting on June 23, 2017, the office will initiate a thrid round of sub-grants to CLGs from all remaining unexpended and unobligated sub-grant funds totaling approximately $14,000.00.
