Preserve America

Web logo, Preserve America

Preserve America is a White House initiative. The goal is to unite the efforts of 11 federal agencies working to support community initiatives to develop management strategies and sound business practices to save and use America's cultural and natural heritage. The program offers grants to help communities develop preservation programs and encourages educators to involve students in learning about and using local history. Look for a Preserve America Community near you: almost 600 are designated from Florida to Alaska.

The Information Clearinghouse links to resources within federal agencies partnering in the Preserve America initiative.

Preserve America grants promote heritage tourism and the use of historic sites as educational and economic assets.
