National Park Service awards $15 million to help preserve African American civil rights history
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Park Service

WASHINGTON – The National Park Service’s African American Civil Rights Grant Program has awarded $15,035,000 million to 53 projects in 20 states to help preserve sites and history related to the African American struggle for equality.

“This competitive grant program is just one of the many ways the National Park Service is working to preserve and interpret the lesser-known facets of our nation’s shared history,” said NPS Deputy Director Shawn Benge. “From physical restoration projects to surveys, documentation, and education, this years’ grant funds will help many of our State, Tribal, local, and non-profit partners advance their preservation goals.”

This years’ grant funds will be used to help preserve Harriet Beecher Stowe’s house in Ohio, the All Star Bowling Lanes in South Carolina (which was recently added to the African American Civil Rights Network), a civil rights interpretive trail in Louisiana, and research Gilbert v. Board in Cocoa, FL, a pioneering case for civil rights that helped gain equal pay for Black teachers in Florida.

Visit NPS.gov to learn more about the African American Civil Rights Grant Program, how to apply and dates for upcoming grant opportunities. Over $16 million in FY2021 funding will be available for application in Fall 2021.
