Short Description
The Certified Local Government (CLG) matching grants program in Illinois serves as a resource for participating city and county governments to develop and sustain effective local preservation programs and projects that are critical to preserving local historic resources. The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) administers the Illinois CLG grant program utilizing federal funding it receives from the U.S. Department of Interior, National Park Service (NPS) Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) Program. Under this program, the NPS requires that at least ten percent (10%) of Illinois’ annual federal allocation from the HPF be subgranted exclusively to participating CLGs. Currently, there are 81 CLGs in Illinois. Contingent on resolution of the federal budget for its fiscal year 2018, the SHPO anticipates approximately $110,000 to $150,000 will be available—on a competitive basis—for this round of grants.
