ABPP Announces FY16 Planning Grant Awards
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Park Service
Website: http://www.nps.gov/abpp/grants/planninggrants.htm

More than $1.19 million in National Park Service grants will be used to help preserve and protect America’s significant battlefield lands. The funding from the National Park Service’s American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) will support 20 projects at over 100 battlefields nationwide. From lesser known battles to world war, historians and preservationists study and preserve battlefields across the country that capture the American story.  Today the National Park Service awarded more than $1.19 million in American Battlefield Protection grants to research, document, or interpret dozens of significant American battlefields representing more than 300 years of history.

This year’s grants provide funding for projects at endangered battlefields from the Hawaiian Civil Wars, Indian Wars, Revolutionary War, French and Indian War, World War II, War of 1812, and the Civil War.  Awards were given to projects in 14 states entailing archeology, mapping, cultural resource survey work, documentation, planning, education, and interpretation.

Federal, tribal, state, and local governments, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions are eligible for the battlefield grants, which are awarded annually. 
Since 1996, the American Battlefield Protection Program has awarded 559 planning grant awards totaling $18,442,955 to help preserve significant historic battlefields associated with wars on American soil.

More information about the American Battlefield Protection Program Battlefield Panning Grants is available online at:  www.nps.gov/abpp/grants/planninggrants.htm.
