Grants to Iowa counties, cities, and land-use districts in eligible areas to support a broad range of historic preservation activities.

Grants may be used for historic surveys and evaluations, preservation planning, public education projects, planning projects, and preparing a nomination for the national recognition of a historic site.
The Certified Local Government program seeks to:
Eligible activities include those that involve looking for and establishing the significance of buildings, structures, sites, objects or districts are eligible.

There is no cap for grant projects but please use common sense in making your requests. For example, a request for $25,000 would mean that one Certified Local Government would be receiving about a third of the Certified Local Government grant allocation. Unless the project dealt with a National Historic Landmark or was extremely compelling, it is unlikely that $25,000 or more would be awarded.
It is important that you ask for enough funding to cover project costs. It is better to ask for a slightly larger grant than a reduced one.
Work can begin when the Certified Local Government receives the Notice to Proceed and a Grant in Aid Agreement that has been signed by the State and the Chief Elected Official of the Certified Local Government. Costs incurred prior to this will not qualify as grant-related expenses and will not be reimbursed or regarded as match.
Generally, preliminary work, such as sending Requests for Proposals and signing on consultants, will begin in February following the announcement in December. Grant projects that are not underway by June 1 are subject to cancellation.
Projects must be completed by June 30 of the following year.
