National Park Service and Maritime Administration Announce $2.6 Million in Grants for Maritime History Education and Preservation Projects
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Park Service and Maritime Administration

WASHINGTON — The National Park Service, in partnership with the Maritime Administration, today announced the award of approximately $2.6 million in Maritime Heritage Program grants for projects that teach about and preserve sites and objects related to our nation’s maritime history.

“Our maritime heritage is woven into the nation’s history and identity,” said Director Jonathan B. Jarvis.  “These grants will not only help preserve our maritime resources for future generations, but many of these projects will also directly connect communities to that heritage through educational outreach and involvement in preservation efforts.”

“Since our nation’s very beginning, seafarers have helped build, defend and provide for our way of life in the United States, and the National Maritime Heritage Grant Program preserves and promotes that proud maritime legacy,” said Maritime Administrator Jaenichen. “The projects were so worthwhile in providing education and preservation of our maritime heritage assets that MARAD provided more than $800,000 over the original funding amount to support additional projects that were highly recommended by the Federal review panel.”

National Maritime Heritage Grant awards are made possible through a partnership between the two federal agencies that share a commitment to maritime heritage preservation and education.  Funding is provided by the Maritime Administration through the recycling of vessels from the MARAD’s National Defense Reserve Fleet. The grant program supports a broad range of maritime education and preservation projects, without expending tax dollars, while ensuring that the vessels are dismantled in an environmentally sound manner.

The Maritime Heritage grants are available to state, tribal, and local governments, as well as private non-profit organizations for education and preservation projects.  Education projects are funded in amounts between $25,000-$50,000; preservation projects are funded in amounts between $50,000-$200,000. Education grants can be used for programs such as school curriculum, interpretive programs and web pages, and preservation grant projects can include the rehabilitation or restoration of ships and other maritime resources.
