National Park Service: Historic Preservation Fund Grants to Underrepresented Communities
The National Park Service’s (NPS) Underrepresented Community Grant Program (URC) is intended to diversify the nominations submitted to the National Register of Historic Places to include communities that are currently underrepresented. Projects include surveys and inventories of historic properties associated with communities underrepresented in the National Register, as well as the development or amendment of nominations to the National Register.
This program supports the following Department of the Interior (DOI) priorities:
- Creating a conservation stewardship legacy second only to Teddy Roosevelt: Examine land use planning processes and land use designations that govern public use and access
- Restoring trust with local communities: Expand the lines of communication with Governors, state natural resource offices, Fish and Wildlife offices, water authorities, county commissioners, Tribes, and local communities
Amount: Approximately $500,000-$1,000,000 is available to award 10-25 grants ranging from $15,000-$50,000 each.
Eligibility: State Historic Preservation Offices, Tribal Historic Preservation Offices, Federally Recognized Tribes, Alaska Native Groups, Native Hawaiian Organizations, and Certified Local Governments (list provided at http://go.nps.gov/clg).
