The Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) Grant program is appropriated annually from Congress through the National Park Service to the states. HPD reserves 10 percent of each year's appropriation for grants to Certified Local Governments (CLGs). These 60/40 matching grants enable cities, towns, and rural areas to undertake projects that aid in the preservation of historic properties. 

Current Grant Cycle 

Applications for the grant program are made available on the first Friday in December.  Applications must be submitted on or before February 1 at 11:59pm. Applications are available through the NR-TIGERS, DCA's grant management system.
