BISMARCK – The State Historical Society of North Dakota, through its annual appropriation of Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) money from the National Park Service, is making $45,000 available to the public for use in the restoration, stabilization, and protection of historic and archaeological properties. This funding can only be used on properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
The granting of HPF money is a competitive process. Applications will be reviewed by a committee from the State Historical Society’s Archaeology and Historic Preservation Division and rated in four categories: quality of the application, need for the development work, impact on the historic preservation program, and the project’s compliance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
Eligible activities include pre-development work (plans, evaluations, engineering, and architectural or archaeological services), restoration, rehabilitation, and preservation projects. All activities must meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards. Routine maintenance and work on properties owned by religious organizations or used for religious purposes are not eligible for funding. Pre-development work on religious properties may be eligible.
All applications must be received by the State Historical Society of North Dakota by Friday, July 18, 2014.
The Historic Preservation Fund application is available at history.nd.gov, or by contacting Amy Munson, grants and contracts officer, at 612 East Boulevard Ave., Bismarck, ND 58505-0830, 701.328.3573 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
