12/01/21 11:00 PM ET
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, school districts, and Native American tribal entities to protect historic buildings and sites. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support projects to document, interpret, and preserve the sites related to the African American struggle to gain equal rights as citizens.
The NPS 2008 report, Civil Rights in America, A Framework for Identifying Significant Sites, will serve as a guide in determining the appropriateness of proposed projects and properties. AACR Preservation Grants are funded by the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), administered by the NPS, and will fund a broad range of history projects for historic sites including: survey and inventory, National Register nominations, oral histories and more. Grants are awarded through a competitive process and do not require non-Federal match.
There are separate funding announcements for physical preservation projects and for historical research/documentation projects. Funding announcement P21AS00431 is for physical preservation of historic sites only; P21AS00432 is for historical research/documentation/survey/nomination projects. There is a new Historic Equal Rights grant program under P21AS00430 for physical preservation only of sites involved in the struggle for All American’s civil rights.
Grants fund physical preservation of historic sites to include historic districts, buildings, sites, structures, and objects. Eligible costs include pre-preservation studies, architectural plans and specifications, historic structure reports, preservation plans, and the repair and rehabilitation of historic properties according to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for Archeology and Historic Preservation.
Properties must be listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places or designated a National Historic Landmark, either individually or as contributing to a district, whose significance is associated with African American civil rights and the struggle for equality. Projects not listed in the National Register or not listed in association with African American civil rights must prepare or amend a nomination as part of the grant project.
