NPS American Battlefields FY2011 Battlefield Project Grants CFDA 15.926

The American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) of the National Park Service invites non-profit groups, academic institutions, and local, regional, state, and tribal governments, and other private sector organizations to submit applications for grants. The purpose of this grant program is to provide seed money for projects that lead directly to the identification, preservation and interpretation of battlefield land and/or historic sites associated with battlefields. Project funding has ranged from $5,000 to $80,000.
Applications are due by January 13, 2011.

Application Due Dates

Applications sent by commercial express delivery service or hand-delivered by the applicant must be received in the ABPP office by 4:00 p.m. January 13, 2011.

Applications sent by mail must be USPS postmarked by January 2, 2011.

ABPP encourages applicants to use an express delivery service, as packages sent via regular USPS mail will be irradiated - a process that destroys photographs and colored paper.


Project areas must be on American soil and/or within U.S. territorial waters.

Battlefield Land - Sites where armed conflict, fighting, or warfare occurred between two opposing military organizations or forces recognized as such by their respective cultures (not civil unrest).

Associated Sites - Sites occupied before, during, or after a battle at which events occurred that had a direct influence on the tactical development of the battle or the outcome of the battle. A site must be associated with a battle in order to be considered an Associated Site.
