What Are the Benefits and Requirements of Becoming a Certified Local Government (CLG)?


The benefits include eligibility to compete for federal funds annually allocated to the SHPO for historic preservation, direct participation in review and approval of nominations to the National Register, and technical training and assistance, and formal recognition that a community's historic preservation program meets state and federal standards.  A SHPO generally requires the CLG to submit an annual report summarizing activities and accomplishments, and conducts a performance evaluation once every four years.  For more information, please visit the National Park Service's website.
