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 Thursday, April 13, 2017. All public comments must be received in writing.
Fax: (317) 232-0693
Mail: DHPA Grants Staff, 402 W. Washington St., Room W274, Indianapolis, IN 46204
All public comments received will be presented at the meeting of the State Historic Preservation Review Board on April 19, 2017.
