National Park Service Grants to Protect Civil War Battlefields

WASHINGTON – National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis today announced more than $3.3 million in grants to help preserve more than 200 acres of land at five of America’s Civil War battlefields.  The grant projects are at the Ball’s Bluff (Va.), Brandy Station (Va.), Chickamauga (Ga.), First Deep Bottom (Va.) and Second Manassas (Va.) battlefields. 

“These Civil War battlefields are symbols of individual sacrifice and national heritage that we must protect,” said Jarvis. “These grants will help preserve these sites so that this and future generations can walk these historic places and understand the struggles that define us as a nation.” 

The grants are from the National Park Service’s American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP), one of more than a dozen programs administered by the National Park Service that provides states and local communities technical assistance, recognition, and funding to help preserve their own history and create close-to-home recreation opportunities. 

Consideration for the Civil War battlefield land acquisition grants is given to battlefields listed in the National Park Service’s Civil War Sites Advisory Commission Report on the Nation’s Civil War Battlefields (CWSAC Report).  

Funds were awarded based on the property’s location within CWSAC-defined core and/or study areas, the threat to the battlefield land to be acquired, and the availability of required non-Federal dollar-for-dollar matching funds. Higher consideration is given to acquisitions at battlefields defined as Priority I or II sites in the CWSAC Report. 

Grants are awarded to units of state and local governments for the fee simple acquisition of land, or for the acquisition of permanent, protective interests in land.  Private non-profit groups may apply in partnership with state or local government sponsors.  Complete guidelines for grant eligibility and application forms are available online at: http://www.nps.gov/history/hps/abpp

For further information, contact Elizabeth (Ries) Vehmeyer, Grants Management Specialist, at 202-354-2215 or elizabeth_ries@nps.gov.
