From Preservation Action:
The National Park Service is now accepting applications for several competitive grant programs funded through the Historic Preservation Fund. Together these grants support a broad range of preservation projects. Preservation Action continues to advocate for robust funding for these important grant programs as part of FY24 spending negotiations.
African American Civil Rights Grant Program
The application deadline for $24 million in African American Civil Rights preservation grants is quickly approaching. The program documents, interprets, and preserves sites and stories related to the African American struggle to gain equal rights, from the transatlantic slave trade and onward. These grants fund a broad range of preservation projects including survey and inventory, National Register nominations, oral histories and more and do not require a funding match. Grants are split into two different opportunities, "preservation projects" and "history projects".
Applications are due November 1st *extended*. Learn more and apply today!
Save America's Treasures Grant Program

Grants can be used for preservation and/or conservation work on historic districts, buildings, sites, and objects as well as collections, including artifacts, museum collections, documents, and works of art.
