Historic Preservation Grants

(formerly the Small Grants Program)

As one of the nation’s state historic preservation offices, the New Mexico Historic Preservation Division receives a portion of its funding from the National Park Service to meet its mission through survey work, comprehensive preservation studies, State and National Register nominations, project reviews, providing educational materials and engaging in community outreach. In the current economic climate there are few federal, state, and private funding sources for historic preservation projects.

Small preservation grants can help fund Register nominations, outreach, conditions assessments or lay the groundwork for a major preservation project

In 2015, HPD has set aside funding to facilitate small preservation grants, formerly called the “Small Grants Program”.  This year the program has been renamed “New Mexico Historic Preservation Grants”. 

These grants have been helpful to fund stabilization projects, State and National Register nominations, public education and outreach, conferences, publications and surveys, plans, and assessments.  For- and non-profit organizations, historical societies, archaeological societies, preservation organizations, consultants and local governments that are not Certified Local Governments are eligible to apply. 

If considering a grant application, be sure to review the 2015 New Mexico Grants Manual (below) before applying. 

HPD is required to set aside 10% of its funding for grants to participating Certified Local Governments. CLGs apply annually for these special grants, which fund a variety of preservation activities and the continuing education of staff and board members.  For information about grants to Certified Local Governments, please see the webpage for Certified Local Government Grants here:  http://www.nmhistoricpreservation.org/programs/clg.html
