NPS invites applications for the new Battlefield Interpretation Grant program, created to fund “projects and programs that deploy technology to modernize battlefield interpretation and education” at eligible Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and Civil War battlefield sites (54 USC §3081). Two categories of grants are available for projects in different stages: 1. Scoping grants are available to fund early stages of project development, such as research and content creation, consultation with stakeholders, exploration of available technologies, audience research, and development of technical proposals. The federal share for these grants should range from $20,000-$50,000 and have a period of performance of 1-2 years. 2. Implementation grants are available to applicants who have completed interdisciplinary scoping prior to application and can provide draft content and design plans.
