Historic Preservation Fund- History of Equal Rights- Preservation Grants
The National Park Service’s (NPS) History of Equal Rights Grant Program (HER) will preserve sites related to the struggle of all Americans to gain equal rights. HER grants are funded by the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), administered by the NPS, and will fund a broad range of preservation projects for historic sites including: architectural services, historic structure reports, preservation plans, and physical preservation to structures. The program funds preservation projects using the NPS report, Civil Rights in America, A Framework for Identifying Significant Sites, as a guide in determining the appropriateness of proposed projects and properties. Grants are awarded through a competitive process and do not require non-Federal match.
Deadline: Sep. 14, 2022
Eligible applicants are State governments, local governments, nonprofits, educational institutions, and Federally Recognized Indian Tribes, Alaskan Natives, and Native Hawaiian Organizations as defined by 54 USC 300300. Grants are not available for sites or collections owned by the NPS.
Preservation projects must range from $75,000 to $750,000 in federal share, of which no more than 20% of the total budget may go toward pre-preservation costs such as architectural or engineering services.
Grant applications that solely involve pre-preservation work must range from $15,000 to $75,000.
