FY 2018 NOAA Preserve America Initiative Internal Funding Program - Funded Projects

The NOAA Preserve America Initiative Internal Funding Program (PAIIF) is pleased to announce the 2018 PAIIF recipients. Each project demonstrates the concept of using heritage to communicate NOAA's messages and contemporary issues that are of relevance to the American public today. The projects represent current issues facing the nation and our agency: sustainable economies, community and cultural engagement, building strong partnerships, educating future generations through learning about the past, and engaging in diversity and inclusiveness for the future. The projects selected this year represent great diversity in scope, geography, and preservation.
