National Park Service: Tribal Heritage Grant ProgramDeadline: July 1, 2019
The Tribal Heritage Grant Program will award grants to Federally recognized Tribes for cultural and historic preservation projects. These grants assist Tribes, Alaskan Natives, and Native Hawaiian Organizations in protecting and promoting their unique cultural heritage and traditions. From the beginning, this program has been shaped by Indian tribes. It focuses on what they are most concerned about protecting: Traditional skills, oral history, plant and animal species important in tradition, sacred and historic places, and the establishment of tribal historic preservation offices.
This program supports the following priorities:
- Ensuring sovereignty means something: Support tribal self-determination, self-governance, and sovereignty
- 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 is available to make up to 15 awards ranging from $15,000-$60,000.
Eligibility: Federally-recognized Tribes, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiian Organizations.
