National Park Service: American Battlefield Protection Program
The American Battlefield Protection Program supports the identification, research, evaluation, interpretation, and protection of historic battlefields and associated sites on a national, state, and local level.
Projects must relate to planning, interpreting, and protecting sites where historic battles were fought on American soil during the armed conflicts that shaped the growth and development of the United States. Projects should enable present and future generations to learn and gain inspiration from the ground where Americans made their ultimate sacrifice.
This program supports the following priorities:
- Foster relationships with conservation organizations advocating for balanced stewardship and use of public lands
- Expand the lines of communication with Governors, state natural resources offices, Fish and Wildlife offices, water authorities, county commissioners, Tribes, and local communities
This program supports the priorities listed above by assisting conservation or preservation organizations as well as Federal, State, local, and tribal governments with projects related to local and regional community needs and interests.
Amount: A total of $1,200,000 is available to make approximately 20 awards ranging from $10,000-$100,000.
Eligibility: Special district governments; county governments; city or township governments; independent school districts; public and state controlled institutions of higher education; Native American tribal governments and tribal organizations; nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS; state governments; and private institutions of higher education.
