What is a Certified Local Government?
A Certified Local Government is one that has developed a local preservation ordinance which meets standards established by the State Historic Preservation Office and the National Park Service. CLG’s participate in guiding historic preservation actions and planning locally according to nationally recognized standards. They are members of a professional organization promoting historic preservation by responding to the community’s individual needs, developing unique funding opportunities, creating long-range plans with historic preservation as a key element, and by providing a high level of expertise to those who seek their assistance. Certain federal grant programs are available only to CLG’s.
