National Park Service Announces $12.2 Million in Grants to Preserve African American Civil Rights History
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Park Service
Website: http://www.nps.gov

WASHINGTON – The National Park Service today announced $12.259 million in African American Civil Rights grants to fund 44 projects across 17 states that will preserve and highlight stories related to the African American struggle for equality in the 20th century.

“Through the work and engagement of public and private partners, these grants will preserve a defining part of our nation’s diverse history,” National Park Service Deputy Director P. Daniel Smith said. “By working with underrepresented communities to preserve their historic places and stories, we will help tell a more complete narrative of the African American experience in the pursuit of civil rights.”

Congress appropriated funding for the African American Civil Rights Grants Program in 2018 through the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF). The HPF uses revenue from federal oil leases on the Outer Continental Shelf, providing assistance for a broad range of preservation projects without expending tax dollars. Grant-supported projects include surveys and documentation, interpretation and education, oral histories, architectural services, historic structure reports, planning, and physical preservation.

Projects receiving grants this year will preserve resources, places, and stories like the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama; the African American Women’s Suffrage experience in Mount Vernon, New York; and the rehabilitation of the Juanita Craft Civil Rights House and Memorial Garden in Dallas, Texas. Grant projects also include surveys to identify lesser-known civil rights sites associated with Connecticut’s Southern Students Work Projects, the March on Frankfort, Kentucky, and an African American Civil Rights Trail in Cleveland, Ohio.
