Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program Awards $180,000 in Grants
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Park Service

Church Creek, MD – The National Park Service's National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program, in collaboration with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), announces the awarding of $180,000 in grants.

Twenty Network to Freedom Members will receive up to $10,000 each for projects that enhance the preservation, interpretation, and research of the Underground Railroad, one of the nation’s first civil rights movements.

“The National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program is thrilled to support our members in this way,” said National Program Manager Diane Miller. “This year, many grant recipients emphasized the importance of engaging their community in preservation efforts, the development of educational programming, supporting teachers and students, and creating interpretive markers or waysides. We cannot wait to see how these communities come together and complete these projects in the next 18 months.” 

"ASALH is delighted to continue to work as a partner in this year's Network to Freedom Grant Program,” said Executive Director Sylvia Cyrus. “We are encouraged by the grantee projects that will preserve the history and educate thousands about the importance of the Underground Railroad to the United States today.” 

Established in 1998, the Network to Freedom is one of many National Park Service programs that carry out the agency’s mission beyond national parks. The program collaborates with local, state and federal entities, as well as individuals and organizations to serve as a catalyst for innovation, partnerships, and scholarship that connects and shares the diverse legacy of the Underground Railroad across boundaries and generations.
