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.

Due to anticipated flat federal funding (Nevada's annual Historic Preservation Fund award from the National Park Service), the State Historic Preservation Office will only have funds sufficient to partially support proposals from Nevada's four Certified Local Governments (CLG).

The Office will continue to accept HPF sub-grant applications from non-CLGs, but these proposals are unlikely to receive funding.

All requirements for HPF sub-grant applications still apply.

Applications must be signed in full. The National Park Service (NPS) requires all documents to contain original, wet signatures. Digital applications or copies are not allowed per this requirement.  Applications are due by close of business on December 16th, 2016.

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.
