The Idaho CLG Grants Manual is intended to assist and support Certified Local Governments interested in pursuing federal funds for historic preservation projects in their community, and to provide guidance to CLGs in successfully carrying out an approved grant-funded project. To receive those funds, it is necessary for the CLG to be able to comply with certain federal, state, and local regulations. This manual has been developed to help clarify and simplify those regulations to the greatest extent possible, and to make the process to apply for and spend those funds easy and efficient. This manual is not intended to replace the Idaho Certified Local Government Program Handbook. Please refer to the Program Handbook for more details on becoming a Certified Local Government, maintaining CLG status, and more information on the CLG program in general.
