The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site Foundation and the National Park Service have had a unique public/private partnership for nearly 50 years. The Foundation is responsible for the management, maintenance, and operations of the Site, while the NPS provides a variety of support services and funds approximately 40% of its annual operating budget. Because of the Foundation’s management and financial responsibilities, the regional office of the NPS has granted the Site permission to remain open during the government closure.
