Certified Local Governments

The Missouri Certified Local Government (CLG) Program is administered in Missouri by the Department of Natural Resources’ State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). The program came into existence as a result of 1980 Congressional amendments to the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. The CLG program is designed to expand the historic preservation network of the federal and state governments by creating a mechanism for participation of local governments.

Benefits

CLG cities have the advantage of receiving technical training on a variety of preservation topics from the State Historic Preservation Office. SHPO prioritizes CLGs for technical assistance requests.

By law, 10% of the Historic Preservation Fund Grants administered by the State Historic Preservation Office must be awarded to Certified Local Government communities.

Consideration as a host community for a Missouri Preservation Annual Conference!
