The National Park Service (NPS) provides technical and financial assistance to all insular areas through each jurisdiction’s State Historic Preservation Office and funded by the Historic Preservation Fund. Through annual formula grants, NPS supports the mission and vision of the National Historic Preservation Act and the Compacts of Free Association to build capacity, protect cultural resources, and assist insular area jurisdictions in the survey and inventory, monitoring, protection, and designation of historic properties and archeological sites.
