For-Grants-page

 

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 accepting grant applications for FY2020.
