DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -

Iowa officials have awarded more than $90,000 in grant money to a dozen Iowa cities supporting historic preservation programs.

The state Department of Cultural Affairs says the grants are from the Certified Local Government program. It's a partnership between local, state and national governments.

The grant money for the cities is between about $2,000 and about $11,000.

Participation in the program that grants the money offers resources like expert advice from the National Park Service and participation in a preservation network.
