Each year the Division of Historic Preservation distributes an allocation of federal funds for historic preservation projects through a competitive grants process. These funds are allocated to the SHPO by the National Park Service, U. S. Department of the Interior's Historic Preservation Fund (HPF). The focus of the grant proposals should be related to ongoing state and federally mandated programs and initiatives that are outlined in the Louisiana Comprehensive Plan.

State Plan

In 2024, LASHPO will give special priority to Goal 4, projects that Expand and Promote State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) Services and Programs.  Other proposals that relate to ongoing state and federally-mandated programs and initiatives outlined in the Louisiana Comprehensive Plan entitled First We Make a Roux:  Ingredients for Preservation Partnerships in Louisiana:  2017-2025, will also be considered.  These initiatives include:

Goal 1: Expand Existing Partnerships and Collaborations and Establish New Partnerships Beyond the Preservation Community

Goal 2: Emphasize The Importance Of Education and Public Knowledge

Goal 3: Build Visibility

Goal 5: Continue to Build Ways to Identify and Protect Historic Properties

Please reference the State Plan for specific Objectives and Strategies outlined in each goal. All proposals must include an outreach, public education, or media component within the overall proposed grant project.

Typical recipients include historic preservation organizations, parish governments, economic development districts, planning commissions, museum houses, state agencies, municipal governments, educational institutions, historic district commissions and Certified Local Governments (CLG).

Previously funded projects include, but are not limited to, the development of preservation plans, design guidelines, and document digitization. Previous projects also included surveys of historic districts, preparation of National Register nominations, Historic American Building Survey (HABS) documentation and educational activities to promote historic preservation.

Typical funded CLG projects include the development of design guidelines for historic districts, municipal Historic Resource Inventory Surveys, feasibility studies on a single or group of historic buildings, condition assessments and historic structures reports. Projects also include public information projects relative to historic preservation and historic preservation training programs for officials and local citizens.  You can view previous Grant funded projects within the table at the bottom of the page.  

These awarded grant funds must be matched by non-federal monies on at least a 60/40 basis, though grantees may elect to overmatch. Grant funds are distributed on a reimbursable basis only (the recipient makes an expenditure and is subsequently reimbursed for the grant portion of the expenditure when the necessary billing documentation is received).
