Program 1

* Targeting and acquiring lighthouses being excessed under the NHLPA of 2000 by the US Department of the Interior/National Park Service; * Restoring historic sites according to the National Park Service standards for historic lighthouses. * HPP is a membership-based organization and is actively recruiting members and volunteers * Using local businesses for materials, labor, and consultants in the restoration and preservation process in order to boost economy and raise awareness of properties; * Make sites self-sufficient and non-impacting on the environment through renewable energy resources and biofuel technology (looking for grants and partners currently); * Teaming with youth programs to open the structures to work retreats for the youth. This allows them to work as a team and build essential life-skills on a unique property that they can identify with; * Opening properties to the general public during specific months and weekends - visitors can then be made aware of energy and youth programs.
