In 2005, Congress provided funding to the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service through the Historic Preservation Fund for an emergency appropriation to Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Louisiana received $22.5 million to enhance the Division of Historic Preservation services to the public and provide grants for the renovation of historic buildings. The Historic Building Recovery Grant Program provided funding a total of 570 grants across the State of Louisiana, with 95 percent of the funding being invested in more than 20 nationally designated historic districts across New Orleans. The program ended in 2010. This program was the hurricane recovery program that specifically targeted historic buildings.
