Grants to Nevada nonprofit organizations and government agencies for the preservation of historic and archeological sites and resources. Applicants are encouraged to discuss proposals with program staff prior to the deadline. Projects may involve planning and surveys, building rehabilitation, public outreach and education, and archeological investigations.

The SHPO has set the following priorities for this fiscal year:

1) Encourage the creation or updating of preservation or survey plans for local governments within the state.

2) Proposals for projects that will record and complete National Register of Historic Places evaluations of historic and prehistoric archaeological resources.

3) Proposals that will result in products (brochures, PSAs, billboards, webinars, reusable trainings, etc.) to educate the public and local governments on the economic benefits of historic preservation. These products should publicize the economic value of rehabilitating historic buildings to maintain high property values in neighborhoods and communities and improve the quality of life for their residents and visitors.

Applicants should be prepared to complete the funded phases of a project within 9 - 12 months from the date the funding agreement is executed.

The final date for project completion is June 30, 2018.

Applicants must be either a governmental agency or a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Due to anticipated flat federal funding (Nevada's annual Historic Preservation Fund award from the National Park Service), the State Historic Preservation Office will only have funds sufficient to partially support proposals from Nevada's four Certified Local Governments (CLG).

The Office will continue to accept HPF sub-grant applications from non-CLGs, but these proposals are unlikely to receive funding.

Private property owners are not eligible.

Resources must be listed in the National Register of Historic Places to be eligible for grant-assisted rehabilitation projects.

Interested applicants are encouraged to contact the Historic Preservation office to discuss proposed projects for compatibility with the SHPOs annual priorities.

Applications must be received by SHPO no later than Friday, December 16, 2016 at 5:00 PM, regardless of delivery method. Any applications received after this time and date will not be considered.

The HPF subgrant is a reimbursement-based grant. In other words, if the application is funded, the project expenditures are incurred by the applicant/grantee, who then submits the appropriate forms and documentation to the SHPO for reimbursement after a funding agreement is executed.
