National Park Service grants are offered to U.S. nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribal governments, and IHEs to preserve historical battlefield sites. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to several weeks to complete. Funding may be used for planning, land acquisition, restoration, and interpretation.
The objective of NPS ABPP Battlefield Restoration Grant program supports the agency's priorities of enhancing the public's experience with protected lands and large-scale conservation efforts, including state and local battlefield parks. Our goal is to increase investment in protected battlefields and engage a diverse community of preservation partners. As the nation approaches the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in 2026, NPS ABPP encourages projects that promote and expand preservation as well as enhance our understanding of the origins of the United States. Special thematic priority will be given to applications that preserve and interpret historic sites associated with the American Revolutionary War as a living part of community life and development.
