The Certified Local Government (CLG) program is a national program that encourages preservation at a local level. National, State and Local governments come together to recognize and address local preservation issues. Benefits of the CLG program include grant funding, technical assistance, and community identification of significant places. CLG grants have funded projects such as a survey of historic districts and repairs to historic buildings. Every year, over $50,000 can be utilized by counties in Hawaii to support their communities. This panel will explore how this program works in Hawaii and ways in which community groups and agencies can collaborate to make the most of this program.
