$428.5k for historic preservation

Feb 28, 2021

The Commonwealth’s Historic Preservation Office of the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs is receiving $428,531, the National Park Service announced. The grant will be used to support a variety of historic preservation and community projects focused on heritage preservation. The money will also provide technical assistance to private and public interests that seek to preserve and protect historic resources in the Marianas. Appropriated by Congress, Historic Preservation Fund grants are administered by the Park Service and awarded annually to states and territories for the identification and protection of historic properties and supporting activities. Established in 1977, funding for the Historic Preservation Fund is provided by Outer Continental Shelf oil lease revenues. Congratulations to HPO.
