Request a Grant Writer

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 applicants purchase land through fee simple methods, or through the purchase of an interest in the land through a preservation covenant.

The National Park Service (NPS) makes available funds from the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) to help States and local communities acquire and preserve threatened Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and Civil War Battlefields. The Battlefield Land Acquisition Grants (BLAG) are administered by the American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) and awarded through a competitive process. Each grant requires a dollar-for-dollar non-Federal match. Grants are available to purchase 1) land in fee simple or 2) permanent, protective interests in land (easements) at battlefields listed in the Civil War Sites Advisory Commission's (CWSAC) 1993 Report on the Nation's Civil War Battlefields or the 2007 Report to Congress on the Historic Preservation of Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Sites in the United States (Reports).

To be eligible for acquisition, land must be at least 50% within the boundary of one of the 384 battlefields identified in the 1993 Report on the Nation's Civil War Battlefields, or one of the 177 battlefields identified in the 2007 Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Historic Preservation Study. The land must also be outside the boundaries of any National Park Service unit legislative boundary.

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 https://www.nps.gov/orgs/2287/index.htm.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Battlefield Land Acquisition Grants will be awarded to units of State and local governments. In any case where a private non-profit organization seeks to acquire battlefield land with assistance from this program, that organization must apply in partnership with a State or local government agency sponsor. 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 may not charge costs for administering the project to the grant or to the required matching share.

Pre-Application Information:

Battlefield Land Acquisition Grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Applications must be received by October 31, 2020 at 11:59 PM ET. Applicants are encouraged to submit the application well before the deadline.
