Historic Preservation Grants

As one of the nation’s state historic preservation offices, the New Mexico Historic Preservation Division (HPD) receives a portion of its operating budget from the National Park Service. This helps HPD to continue to identify and protect New Mexico's cultural resources.  While HPD recognizes that there are few federal, state, and private funding sources available to assist historic preservation projects and HPD was pleased to be able fund a grant program in 2014 & 2015, funding for a grants program, however, is no longer available.  HPD hopes to resurrect the Historic Preservation Grants Program in the future when a funding source is located. 

Former Grants

Small preservation grants can help fund Register nominations, outreach, conditions assessments or lay the groundwork for a major preservation project

The Historic Preservation Grants Program has been helpful in the past to fund stabilization projects, State and National Register nominations, public education and outreach activities, conferences, publications and surveys, plans, and assessments.  Grant recipients included for-profit and non-profit preservation organizations like historical societies, archaeological societies, preservation organizations, consultants and local governments that are not Certified Local Governments.  In the past, Grants were awarded for projects that have a community benefit - funding is not available for privately-owned residences.   

Grants Administration

Administration of the grants program is via the New Mexico Grants Manual (link below) and the Historic Preservation Fund, Grants Manual produced by the National Park Service, found here:  https://www.nps.gov/preservation-grants/HPF_Manual.pdf 

CLG Grants

HPD does have a grant program for Certified Local Governments. A Certified Local Government (CLG) is a community which has a made a commitment towards preservation at the local level and has passed a preservation ordinance and established a preservation commission.  CLGs can apply annually for these grants which fund a variety of preservation activities and the continuing education of staff and board members.  For information about grants to Certified Local Governments, please see the webpage for Certified Local Government Grants here:  http://www.nmhistoricpreservation.org/programs/clg.html
