The U.S. Department of the Interior protects America’s natural resources and heritage, honors our cultures and tribal communities, and supplies the energy to power U.S. future. Through it’s different bureaus and offices it provides grants, tax credit programs related with America’s natural resources and America’s heritage.
Land and Water Conservation Fund
The program provides matching grants to States and local governments for the acquisition and development of public outdoor recreation areas and facilities (as well as funding for shared federal land acquisition and conservation strategies).
Federal Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit
Provides tax benefits for historic preservation easements. Typically in the form of a deed, a voluntary legal agreement is formed that permanently protects a historic property; the easement allows the property owner to restrict development or changes, and then transfers these restrictions to a preservation or conservation organization.
