Grants to USA state and local government agencies for the acquisition and preservation of historic sites. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended to help communities purchase land through fee simple methods, or acquire a protective interest in eligible land through easements.

Grants are available to purchase 1) land in fee simple or 2) permanent, protective interests in land (easements) at Civil War Battlefields listed in the Civil War sites Advisory Commission's (CWSAC) 1993 Report on the Nation's Civil War Battlefields and at Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Battlefields listed in the American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) 2007 Report to Congress on the Historic Preservation of Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Sites in the United States (Reports).

Foremost consideration is given to application packages for acquisition proposals at battlefields defined as Priority I or II sites in the Reports. The Reports and a listing of battlefields’ priority status can be found at on the Web at http://www.nps.gov/abpp.

Land acquired with these funds must be preserved in perpetuity. In any case where a local government or a private non-profit organization acquires land or an interest in land with assistance from this program, it must convey an acceptable perpetual protective easement on the land to the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) or other organization acceptable to the National Park Service and SHPO.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

In accordance with 54 U.S.C. § 308103(b), Battlefield Acquisition Grant Program, this funding opportunity is limited to State or local governments. A nonprofit organization may acquire an interest in an eligible site by applying in partnership with a State or local government which has jurisdiction over the property to be acquired or put under easement.

Battlefield Land Acquisition Grants will be awarded to units of State and local governments.

The government agency may then subgrant the Federal funds to the non-profit organization.

Funds may not be used to acquire land or interests in land within the legislative boundary of a National Park. Grantees or subgrantees must provide for the appropriate public access (entry or viewable from public right-of-way) to and enjoyment of any lands or interests in lands acquired with assistance from this program, subject to necessary and reasonable measures on the part of the beneficiary to protect the historic features of the battlefield from damage or loss.

Grantees may not charge costs for administering the project to the grant or to the required matching share.

Land acquired with these funds must be preserved in perpetuity. In any case where a local government or a private non-profit organization acquires land or an interest in land with assistance from this program, it must convey an acceptable perpetual protective easement on the land to the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) or other organization acceptable to the National Park Service and SHPO.
