    The NPS’s Underrepresented Communities Grant Program (URC) is now accepting applications for competitive grants. Since 2014, the NPS has awarded almost $3 million in grants to diversify the nominations to the National Register of Historic Places. Grant-supported projects include surveys and inventories of historic properties associated with communities underrepresented in the National Register, as well as the development of new nominations to the National Register.

    The National Park Service’s (NPS) Historically Black Colleges & Universities Grant Program (HBCU) is now accepting applications for competitive grants. The HBCU Preservation Grant Program exists to document, preserve, and stabilize structures on HBCU campuses that are listed in the National Register of Historic Places either individually or as contributing to a National Register or National Historic Landmark historic district.

    Applications for both programs will be due March 31, 2021.
