URC grants are funded by the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), and are administered by the NPS. Projects include surveys and inventories of historic properties associated with communities underrepresented in the National Register, as well as the development of nominations to the National Register for specific sites.
Congress has appropriated $750,000 in URC funding for FY2020. Applications are due March 31, 2021.
Historically Black Colleges and Universities Grant Program
The National Park Service’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities Grant Program (HBCU) works to fund physical preservation of National Register listed historic sites on accredited HBCU campuses. Since the 1990s, the National Park Service has awarded over $77 million in grants to over 60 of the remaining active HBCUs. HBCU grants are funded by the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF), and are administered by the NPS. Projects include pre-preservation studies, architectural plans and specifications, historic structure reports, and the repair and rehabilitation of historic properties according the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for Archeology and Historic Preservation.
