Comprehensive Statewide Historic Preservation Plan (State Plan 2007-2011)

To join the National program, and to continue receiving Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) Grants, Guam must update its NPS-approved State Plan every 5 years. The current plan will be updated in 2015.

HPF Grants

By submission and approval of fiscal year HPF grant applications, the Division receives HPF grants from the National Park Service, U. S. Department of the Interior, to implement planned goals. HPF Grant amounts are based on apportionments determined by the U.S. Congress. Grants are obligated to the 50 States, Territories, Commonwealths and Freely Associated States.
