Responsibilities

The Historic Preservation Section works in conjunction with the Prince George’s County Planning Board and the Historic Preservation Commission. Staff maintain a collection of historical resources, identify, designate, and regulate historic sites, and provide expert guidance to encourage preservation awareness.

Non-Capital Grant Program

The Prince George’s County Historic Preservation Commission’s Non-Capital Grant Program (Grant Program) provides grants to support projects that identify, preserve, promote, and protect the historical, cultural, and archeological resources of Prince George’s County for the benefit of the public and to encourage the revitalization of communities. These grants are intended to help produce and disseminate information, stimulate public discussion about preservation, make technical expertise accessible, and encourage community partnerships. The Grant Program can be used to pay for professional services such as preservation and planning consultants, planning studies, design work, and education.
