​KHC's Site Identification Program partners with many of Kentucky's communities and local governments who are committed to historic preservation and the value it adds to their districts.

Within Site Identification is the Certified Local Government (CLG) Program. This program is a local, state, and federal collaboration that promotes and helps communities meet their preservation goals through grant funding, training, and technical assistance. Likewise, The Kentucky Main Street Program focuses on the revitalization and economic development of communities' downtown areas through historic preservation opportunities.

The Site Identification Program also includes survey, evaluation, and nomination of historic resources that are fundamental to local communities creating and implementing effective preservation plans. Furthermore, the Site Identification team actively provides training, education, and information in preservation to the wider public.

All of which showcases the partnership between KHC and communities, as well as demonstrating that preservation decisions are best made locally.
