CLG Grant Funds

Certified Local Government Grant Funds


Each year, the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency receives an appropriation from the federal Historic Preservation Fund to assist in administering federal preservation programs. At least 10% of the funding must be set aside for sub-grants to CLGs. Rock Island applies for CLG grant funds nearly every year, competing against other Illinois CLGs for the funding.
