Grant of the Week: Network to Freedom Grants
Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the National Park Service National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program grants.
Through the generosity of the 400 Years of African American History Commission, and in collaboration with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), the National Park Service National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program (NTF) is pleased to announce the availability of grant funds for 2022.
Centering the Underground Railroad around enslaved people who self-liberated broadens our understanding of this movement beyond safe houses on the way to Canada. That was just one part of a larger resistance movement against slavery. Projects that highlight lesser-known aspects of the Underground Railroad such as the movement south to Spanish Florida, Mexico, or the Caribbean, maroon communities, or the involvement of Indigenous nations will be awarded bonus points in their evaluation.
Award amounts are based on the grant categories. For grants to existing Network to Freedom sites, programs, or facilities for preservation, research, or interpretation, there is $100,000 available for grants from $1,000 to $10,000. For grants for writing applications for new sites, programs, or facilities to become listed in the Network to Freedom, there is $50,000 available for grants up to $5,000.
End: May 13, 2022
