Over $200,000 was granted to nine historic preservation projects throughout the state today, with four being earned by local governments. Los Angeles was one of them, winning two $25,000 grants for the SurveyLA, which is the city's "comprehensive program to identify significant historic resources throughout" L.A. One of the grants will go towards a public participation and outreach plan for a handful of neighborhoods, including Silver Lake, Echo Park, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Brentwood and other neighborhoods. There are already over 950 historical monuments in Los Angeles.

Also, Calabasas got $9,000 to develop an Archeological Identification Plan and Riverside got $25,000 to identify properties related to the Harada House, a National Historic Landmark. The money comes from the National Park Service via the California’s Office of Historic Preservation.
