African American Civil Rights Movement of the 20th Century Grant Deadline Approaching
The African American Civil Rights Grant Program (Civil Rights Grants) documents, interprets, and preserves sites related to the African American struggle to gain equal rights as citizens in the 20th Century.
Funded by the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), and administered by the National Park Service (NPS), this competitive grant program provides grants to states, tribes, local governments, and nonprofits. Non-federal matching share is not required, but preference will be given to applications that show community commitment through non-federal match and partnership collaboration. Grants will fund a broad range of planning, development, and research projects for historic sites including: survey, inventory, documentation, interpretation, education, architectural services, historic structure reports, preservation plans, and physical preservation of historic buildings and sites.
NPS is currently accepting applications for grant projects through Grants.gov with an extended deadline due to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma of October 8, 2017, 11:59pm.
To learn more about the application process, please visit the NPS African American Civil Rights Grant Program website.
