In recognition of the significance of Route 66 to America’s heritage, Congress passed an act in 1999 to create the Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program.

Administered by the National Park Service, the program is dedicated to preserving the special places and stories of the historic highway.


funded in 2001, the program collaborates with private, nonprofit, and government partners to identify, prioritize, and address priority preservation needs of Route 6 6. The program provides cost-share grants for the preservation of the most significant and representative building, structures, road segments, and cultural landscapes along the length of the Route 66 corridor, covering Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California.

Cost-share grants are also available for planning, research and educational initiatives related to the preservation of Route 6 6. The funding and technical assistance provided by the program empowers and leverages the public to preserve and commemorate the special places and stories of this important era of American history.

The cost-share grant program is established for Fiscal Year 2021 only and is subject to revision or cancellation in future years based on annual congressional or programmatic appropriations and priorities.The projects and activities will be individually authorized by separate awards, with each project or activity having a separate work plan and budget developed cooperatively between the NPS and the cooperator.
