The Sokaogon Chippewa Community Tribal Historic Preservation Office (THPO) has received an Apportionment Competitive Grant awarded by the National Park Service in the amount of $98,910.

This grant will be facilitated by Michael LaRonge, SCC THPO Director. The funding supports the operation of Tribal Historic Preservation Offices. Where relevant, staff and projects must comply with the appropriate Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for Archeology and Historic Preservation.

The purpose of the program is to provide grants to THPOs for the identification, evaluation, and protection of historic properties by such means as survey, planning, technical assistance, development, education, listings in the National Register of Historic Places, review and compliance, and to assist THPOs in carrying out the historic preservation activities that the Tribe agreed to assume from the State Historic Preservation Office, on tribal lands, under their Partnership agreement with the National Park Service. Awards under this program must comply with and support 54 USC 301 et seq., commonly known as the National Historic Preservation Act.
