The Historic Site Preservation Grant Program (HSPG) was created in 1998. The State Historical Society of Iowa is committed to encouraging cultural growth and development throughout the state of Iowa. The Historic Site Preservation Grant provides funds to acquire, repair, rehabilitate, and develop historic sites that preserve, interpret, or promote Iowa’s cultural heritage. Projects funded by this program must promote an understanding of the record of human experience within Iowa.
All HSPG projects are limited to work on “vertical infrastructure,” which is defined in Iowa Code Chapter 8.57 as “land acquisition for construction, major rehabilitation of buildings, all appurtenant structures, utilities, and site developments.” Activities that are not directly related to vertical infrastructure cannot be funded through the HSPG Program.
