CLG Grants

Historic Preservation funding is set aside for Certified Local Governments (CLG). The Historic Preservation Fund requires 10% of the state's allocation be passed through to CLGs through sub-grants. To be certified, a governmental entity must enact and enforce a historic preservation ordinance, maintain a qualified commission to review proposed construction and demolition projects affecting historic districts and landmarks, and ensure public participation in preservation planning, among other requirements. For more on how local governments can pursue this funding under the HPF, see the Certified Local Government Program.
