Grambling State and Southern University will receive a combined total of $1 million from the National Park Service, according to Senator Bill Cassidy's Office.

The money, according to a release, will be used to preserve historic structures on the historically black university campuses.

Funds will be used to renovate the health center, part of Grambling's Historic Village and the Southern University archives building.

Cassidy's Office says that funding is made available through the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF).

"Grambling and Southern are two of the most historic campuses in our state," said Cassidy. "This funding will help preserve buildings that make them unique so that they remain for generations to come."
