$3,241,210 Million to U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States for Historic Preservation

The U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Park Service has announced $3,241,210 million in historic preservation grants that are appropriated annually by Congress from the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF).

The grants are specifically for the U.S. territories of American Samoa, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the freely associated states of the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republics of Palau and the Marshall Islands.

According to U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, “The Department of the Interior and the National Park Service are committed to preserving U.S., island, and tribal history heritage. Fees collected from drilling on the Outer Continental Shelf help fund important conservation tools like these grants. Through valuable partnerships we are able to assist communities across the U.S., tribes, and the U.S.-affiliated islands in the Pacific and Caribbean in ensuring the diverse historic places, culture and traditions that make our country unique are protected for future generations.”

Assistant Secretary, Insular and International Affairs, Doug Domenech said, “The U.S. territories and the freely associated states are rich in historical sites of both cultural and natural significance such as the Columbus Landing site in the Virgin Islands; the House of Taga in the Northern Mariana Islands; Latte Stone Park in Hagåtña, Guam; Papaloa Petroglyphs, in American Samoa; the Nan Madol Ruins in Pohnpei; Peleliu in Palau; the historic DeBrum Estate on Likiep in the Marshall Islands, and more. The preservation and protection of historical and cultural resources is vital for our island communities to thrive.”

 Since its inception in 1977, the HPF has provided more than $1.8 billion in grants to states, tribes, local governments, the U.S. insular areas, and non-profit organizations to mitigate the loss of a non-renewable resource and benefit the preservation of other irreplaceable resources.
