An announcement from National Park Service:

Battlefield Interpretation Grants seek to fund projects that use technology to enhance battlefield interpretation and education. From increasing accessibility, to augmented reality on personal cell phones, to engaging virtual content that explores untold stories, the possibilities are endless. We want to see how you would use technology to meet today’s challenges in battlefield interpretation and education.

Eligible sites include those associated with the American Revolution, War of 1812 or the Civil War. Awarded annually, these competitive grants are open to state, local, and tribal governments, other public entities, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions. Eligible activities are diverse and may include content development, consultation with stakeholders, audience research, fabrication and installation, costs associated with Section 106, and more. This grant requires a non-federal cost share of at least 50%.

The application deadline is May 5, 2021. The funding announcement and application materials are available on Grants.gov. For more information, head to the NPS ABPP website or check out this informational webinar on Battlefield Interpretation Grants.

NPS ABPP staff invite you to share this email and welcome your questions. Contact us at abpp@nps.gov for assistance.
