National Park Service ~ Designation by U.S. Congress
 

A "National Heritage Area" is a "place designated by the U.S. Congress where natural, cultural, historic and recreational resources combine to form a cohesive, nationally distinctive landscape arising from patterns of human activity shaped by geography." The National Park Service provides technical assistance as well as financial assistance for a limited number of years following designation.
