Governor McCrory Announces $105,000 in Grant Funding for 13 Historic Preservation Projects
Raleigh, N.C. Governor Pat McCrory announced today that $105,000 in grant funding has been awarded to 13 historic preservation projects in nine North Carolina counties. These funds will support projects that will help communities restore historic landmarks in small towns and cities throughout North Carolina.
“These grants are important to our local communities to help preserve and maintain some of our state’s most priceless historic properties,” said Governor McCrory. “This is truly a partnership between all levels of government, and I am pleased that we are continuing this effort to promote historic preservation through the Historic Preservation Fund.”
Each year, federal Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) grants are awarded by the North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office (HPO) through the National Park Service’s Certified Local Government Program (CLG). This preservation partnership between local, state, and national governments focuses on promoting historic preservation at the grassroots level. The HPO will both monitor and provide technical assistance for each project.
