WASHINGTON –The National Park Service today announced $1,211,116 to 21 projects in 16 states and the District of Columbia that will survey sites and produce National Register of Historic Places nominations or amendments for diverse communities.  

“The National Park Service is proud to have awarded this grant funding to our State, Tribal, and Certified Local Government partners to help them diversify their listings in the National Register of Historic Places.  Since 2014, the Underrepresented Communities program has provided $5.75 million to to better tell the varied histories and stories of all Americans, so that they may one day no longer be called underrepresented,” said NPS Director, Charles F. Sams III.

This years’ grants include:

- A historic context study of Latino communities in Wisconsin, who make up almost 30% of the state’s population, which will result in at least 2 National Register nominations or amendments;
- National Register nominations for two fire stations in historically African American neighborhoods of Atlantic City, NJ;
- State-wide survey of Colorado’s travel resources where African American’s could stay safely during the time of segregation;
- Survey and nomination of the Jefferson Jacobs Rosenwald School (1916) and the Taylor-Jacob Subdivision in Louisville, KY. Both named for a local farmer who later developed the subdivision, the only known example in the county that was owned, designed, developed, and managed by and for African Americans. (photo)

The Underrepresented Community grant program began in 2014 and has provided $5.75 million to State and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices and Certified Local Governments to work towards diversifying the National Register of Historic Places through surveys and nominations.
