National Park Service’s (NPS) History of Equal Rights Grant Program (HER) - Historic Preservation Fund (HPF)
09/14/22 11:59 PM ET
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, educational institutions, and tribal entities for the preservation of historic sites related to social justice and equal rights. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting a proposal. Funding is intended for a broad range of preservation projects for historic sites including: architectural services, historic structure reports, preservation plans, and physical preservation to structures.
Funded through the Historic Preservation Fund, the History of Equal Rights grant program preserves sites related to the struggle for any or all people to achieve equal rights in America. The History of Equal Rights grants are not limited to any specific group and are intended to include the broadest possible interpretation of sites associated with efforts to achieve equal rights. This program funds physical preservation work and pre-preservation planning activities for sites that are listed in or determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places or as a National Historic Landmark. Should a site not be listed, or not listed for its association with equal rights, then a new nomination or amendment must be created as part of the grant project.
Grants are available for planning and "bricks and mortar" preservation/conservation work on historic buildings and structures. Eligible costs for preservation projects include: architectural services, historic structure reports, preservation plans, and physical preservation to structures.
