In addition to its state functions, the DHR is also responsible for administering the federal preservation program in New Hampshire, which includes nine different program areas:
The New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources/State Historic Preservation Office is financed in part with a federal "Historic Preservation Fund" matching grant from the National Park Service of the United States Department of the Interior. The annual federal matching grant provides up to a maximum of 60% of the total cost of the DHR/SHPO's federally-related program activities.
Regulations of the U.S. Department of the Interior strictly prohibit unlawful discrimination in departmental federally assisted programs on the basis or race, color, national origin, age, or disability. The State of New Hampshire (under RSA 275 and RSA 354-A) prohibits discrimination on the basis of age, sex race, creed, color, marital status, physical or mental disability or national origin. Any person who believes that he or she has been discriminated against in any program, activity, or facility operated by a recipient of federal assistance should write to: Director, Office of Equal Opportunity, National Park Service, 1849 C Street, NW, Washington D.C. 20240.
