Grants to Louisiana groups and individuals for the creation of signs that commemorate historical events, facts, sites, and people. Funding is intended to cover the cost of the signs, including shipping. Each nomination proposing an idea for a sign must particularly identify with the history of the nation, state, or region. Historical markers are privately sponsored and funded by sponsors.

La. R.S. 48:271(A) authorizes the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) to erect, at suitable points selected by the Louisiana Tourism Development Commission (LTDC), bronze markers denoting and describing locations and occasions of historical interest.

In order for an historic event to be eligible for commemoration with a marker, the event must have occurred at least fifty years ago. Likewise, a place or person must have attained its significance at least fifty years ago, although there are exceptions if the event, place, or person is of extraordinary historical significance. Markers shall be erected in safe locations, at or close to the places being commemorated, and where they will be visible to the traveling public. 

For marker placement criteria, see
