The American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) of the National Park Service
invites non-profit groups, academic institutions, and local, regional, state, and
tribal governments to submit applications for the 2018 Battlefield Planning 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. Projects that involve multiple stakeholders
are given preference.
Who May Apply?
Non-profit groups, academic institutions, and local, regional, state, and tribal governments.
The ABPP supports projects that lead to the protection of battlefield land and sites associated
with battlefields. Project areas must be on American (U.S.) 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.
