state is not required to award funds to all CLGs that are eligible to
receive funds. The annual project emphasis will be determined by the SHPO
and conveyed to CLGs as early as possible in the grant application cycle.

area or residential neighborhood.
b. An archaeological survey.

for projects involving the evaluation or protection of resources unless
- Evaluation and Protection of historic and prehistoric resources based
on local need.
Projects could include:
a. Nominations to the NRHP. (Nominations may be individual structures
or sites; historic district or multiple resource nominations, which

c. Design guidelines for historic districts.
d. Public education programs and materials.
e. Technical assistance to owners of historic properties.
f. Architectural plans and specifications, feasibility studies for
development and restoration/rehabilitation of properties listed

for the NRHP.
