Federal Historic Preservation Funds
Help Illinois Communities


The Illinois Historic Preservation Agency announced a new round of Certified Local Government Grants (CLG), totaling $103,136, to eleven communities throughout the state, including Chicago, Blue Island, Berwyn, Quincy, Macomb, Rock Island and Jacksonville. Many of the grants will be used for surveys of historic properties or for historic preservation educational materials for the public. For a complete list of the CLG grant projects and the municipalities awarded, click here.

CLG grants are federally sourced matching grants administered by the state. Each state historic preservation office (SHPO) is annually appropriated federal funds from the U.S. Historic Preservation Fund (HPF). Each SHPO in turn must allocate 10% of its annual appropriation to certified local governments (CLG) for local historic preservation programs or projects. CLGs are municipalities with an historic preservation ordinance and commission, officially certified by the SHPO. Currently, Illinois has 63 CLGs.
