Federal Financial Assistance Specifically for Historic PreservationTribal
In addition to assisting Tribal Historic Preservation Officers in maintaining their historic preservation programs, the Federal Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) is also a source of grants for individual preservation projects proposed by Federally recognized Indian tribes, Alaska Native villages, and Native Hawaiian organizations.
Preservation of specific historic properties is an eligible funding category, as is identification of cultural resources, preservation planning, oral history, and education and training. Since 1990, more than $18.5 million in grants have been awarded. In FY 2007, $678, 300 was awarded.
The National Park Service provides grants to assist Indian tribes, Native Hawaiian organizations, Alaska Native villages and corporations, and museums and other institutions with implementation of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA).
Documentation grants help fund efforts to determine
the cultural affiliation of Native American cultural items covered by NAGPRA that
are currently in the control of museums or other institutions. Grants are also
available to assist in repatriation of such items to the appropriate tribe, Alaska
Native Village, or Native Hawaiian organization. In FY 2008, $2.331 million is available.
