AHPP Awards Certified Local Government Grants

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Thursday, July 20, 2017

LITTLE ROCK—Governor Asa Hutchinson announced today that the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, has awarded $44,069 in grants for projects in three cities through its Certified Local Government (CLG) Grant program.

CLG grants were awarded to the following cities:

* Dumas, $23,469 for a roof restoration and gutters at the Dumas Area Arts Center Building in the Dumas Commercial Historic District

* El Dorado, $13,500 for a National Register of Historic Places nomination for the Goodwin Field Terminal Building

* Eureka Springs, $7,100 for a National Register nomination for the Eureka Springs Cemetery.

The AHPP’s Certified Local Government Grant program is open to Arkansas cities and counties that contain a historic district commission and a historic district protected by a local ordinance. These grants provide training opportunities to local historic district commissions and can fund other local preservation projects. At least 10 percent of the AHPP’s annual appropriation from the federal Historic Preservation Fund goes to CLG cities as grants for local projects.

There currently are 20 Arkansas cities in the CLG program: Little Rock, North Little Rock, Fort Smith, Van Buren, Hot Springs, Eureka Springs, Helena-West Helena, Conway, Pine Bluff, Morrilton, Texarkana, Rogers, Russellville, El Dorado, Fayetteville, Batesville, Benton, Dumas, Osceola and Blytheville. Several others are working to become part of the CLG program.

The AHPP is the Department of Arkansas Heritage agency responsible for identifying, evaluating, registering and preserving the state’s cultural resources. Other agencies are the Arkansas Arts Council, the Delta Cultural Center in Helena, the Old State House Museum, the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the Historic Arkansas Museum and the Arkansas State Archives.
