(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology (DHPA) announces that Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) grant application packets for FY 2018 are now available online.

The deadline is Oct. 6, 2017.

The application packets are posted on the DHPA website at

There are three categories of projects: Architectural & Historical, Archaeological, and Acquisition & Development (rehabilitation). Please download the appropriate application packet and read all instructions carefully. Projects cannot begin until June 1, 2018 and must be completed by June 30, 2019. An overview of the HPF program is available at:

Please note that the Archaeology category has been significantly changed to focus projects on Phase I survey on DNR owned properties. Due to limitations in the environmental review process to call for archaeology on state property, the DHPA is only considering projects that will use the HPF federal grant funds to assist with identifying and documenting archaeological resources that are owned by the State of Indiana. The DHPA has partnered with land-holding divisions within DNR to promote field investigation in Fish and Wildlife Areas, Nature Preserves, State Forests, and State Parks. These survey and investigation priorities will provide much needed information on archaeological resources located on these properties and once identified, provide options for protection, preservation, or possible public interpretation.

If you have questions about a potential project or about the application instructions, please contact the DHPA grant staff: Malia Vanaman at (317) 232-1648 or; or Steve Kennedy at (317) 232-6981 or

The deadline for proposals is Friday, Oct. 6, 2017 at 5 p.m. This is not a postmark deadline; all proposals must be received at the DHPA by the deadline.
