Historic Preservation Fund Grant Priorities Available for Public Comment

Every year the DNR Division of Historic Preservation & Archaeology (DHPA) revises the priorities by which the federally funded Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) grant applications are evaluated. The priorities are established within the parameters of the National Park Service’s Historic Preservation Fund Grant Manual, and represent the types of projects that the DHPA view as important to its mission to identify, document, investigate, preserve, and interpret cultural resources in Indiana.

The HPF Program Guidelines and the evaluation criteria for Administrative, Architectural & Historical, Archaeology, Acquisition & Development are being provided for public review and comment. Please provide any comments to the DHPA Grants Staff by April 8, 2020. All public comments must be received in writing.
