National Park Service’s African American Civil Rights (AACR) Grant Program

From the National Parks

The National Park Service’s African American Civil Rights (AACR) Grant Program is now accepting applications. The goal of the AACR Program is to preserve and protect sites associated with the long struggle for equality from the transatlantic slave trade forward.

These grants fund a broad range of preservation projects including physical preservation of historic structures, survey and inventory, National Register nominations, oral histories, education and interpretation, pre-preservation planning, and more.
Eligible applicants include States, Tribes, non-profits, institutes of higher education, and local governments. Grants are awarded through a competitive process and do not require non-Federal funding match. AACR Grants are funded by the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), administered by the National Park Service’s State, Tribal, Local, Plans & Grants (STLPG).
Applications are due November 8, 2022.
