We have compiled here the Program Overviews that the States were requested to prepare as part of their fiscal year 1982 Historic Preservation Fund (HPF) grant application. The HPF grant application instructions stipulated that the overview was to be between three and ten pages and to comprise "a brief retrospective and prospective statement of the State's preservation program and of the means by which the State will continue to carry out the program of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended."

The State Plans and Grants Division has compiled these overviews in a single volume to facilitate their comparative review, to provide a State-by-State reference to the impact of the Federal preservation program throughout the country in fiscal years 1981 and 1982, and to provide one means of information exchange among the States. The program overviews are presented in unedited form and organized by region. The historic preservation programs of the North Atlantic, Mid Atlantic, and National Capitol Regions have all been administered from the Philadelphia office this year, and accordingly, these regions have been combined.
