The Community Preservation (also known as Certified Local Government) program exists to develop and support local historic preservation programs throughout Wyoming. We provide education, funding, and technical assistance to help protect historic properties in communities across the state. There are currently 22 certified local governments (CLGs) in Wyoming’s Community Preservation program.



What are the benefits of certification?
  • Grant funding
  • Technical assistance
  • National Register participation
  • Training opportunities
  • Networking opportunities
  • Participation in federal consultation
  • State and federal support for preservation in your community
What are the requirements?

  • Enforce a local preservation ordinance or resolution
  • Survey and inventory historic properties
  • Provide opportunities for public participation
  • Submit an annual report

How does a community become certified?

If your town, city, or county is interested in becoming certified please email Erica Duvic or call 307-777-3418.



CLG Grants

CLG Grants

Renée Bovée




Each year the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) must transfer a minimum of ten percent (10%) of the State’s annual apportionment of Historic Preservation Funds (HPF) to Certified Local Governments (CLGs) for eligible activities. Any Wyoming CLG in good standing is eligible to compete for these funds by submitting an application. To be in good standing, a CLG must have an approved annual report from the previous fiscal year that confirms they met the requirements of their CLG agreement. We highly recommend contacting us prior to beginning a grant application to ensure that the applicant and project are eligible for funding.


We are no longer accepting grant applications for FY2019.
