Leahy, Sanders, Welch: Vermont Nets $377,000 For Historic Site Preservation

Press Release

Location: Unknown

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Senator Bernie Sanders (I.-Vt.), and Congressman Peter Welch (D-Vt.) announced Monday that Vermont has been awarded $377,564 in historic preservation grants. The grants will help the state preserve and protect its historic sites.

The grants are part of $22.9 million in historic preservation grants awarded nationwide, with Vermont receiving 1.6 percent of the total award. State officials may use the grants to fund a broad range of preservation projects, such as survey and inventory of historic properties, National Register of Historic Places nominations, preservation education, architectural planning, historic structures reports, community preservation planning and bricks-and-mortar repair to buildings.

In a joint statement, Leahy, Sanders and Welch said, "Vermont has a long legacy of preserving and protecting its heritage and special places. These funds will help this generation of Vermonters to do that."

The Historic Preservation Fund is supported by revenue from federal oil leases on the Outer Continental Shelf. The National Park Service administers the fund and uses the majority of appropriated funds to distribute matching grants.
