The National Park Service is announcing $500,000 in National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom (NTF) Grants to prospective Network to Freedom members. Current Network to Freedom Members may submit proposals for preservation and interpretative projects. Anyone may submit a proposal to research and write a nomination for a site to become a Network to Freedom member.

This year, the NTF wants to encourage student engagement. Special preference will be given to projects that have a direct student engagement or education component. For example:

- Involving students in researching UGRR sites and writing NTF applications
- Involving students in developing exhibits, websites, videos, or other interpretive material
- Developing lesson plans, teacher materials, and curriculum materials
- Teacher workshops on how to teach UGRR history
