History of Equal Rights Grant
Event Category 

The National Park Service is proud to announce a new competitive civil rights grant program. The History of Equal Rights Grant Program (HER) will preserve sites related to the struggle to achieve the ideal of equal rights in America. HER Grants are funded by the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), administered by the NPS, and will fund a broad range of pre-preservation planning activities and physical preservation work for historic sites that are listed in or determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places or as a National Historic Landmark. Congress has appropriated $2.5 million for the HER Grant Program.

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. Grants will be awarded through a competitive process and do not require non-Federal funding match.

Eligible applicants are state and local governments, nonprofits, educational institutions, and Federally Recognized Indian Tribes, Alaskan Natives, and Native Hawaiian Organizations as defined by 54 USC 300300.

More information and applications for HER Preservation Grants are available at HER-P21AS00201
