Dept. of the Interior - National Maritime Heritage Grant Program. Deadline: 9/20. $2M Available.

Opportunity Title:

National Maritime Heritage Grant Program

Opportunity Number:



The National Maritime Heritage Grants Program provides funding for education and preservation projects designed to preserve historic maritime resources and to increase public awareness and appreciation for the maritime heritage of the United States. This grant program is funded through the proceeds of the sale or scrapping of obsolete vessels of the National Defense Reserve Fleet. Grants are administered in partnership with the U.S. Department of Transportation, Maritime Administration (MarAd). This grant program is authorized by the National Maritime Heritage Act, 54 USC 308701-380707. All grants must be matched on a 1:1 basis with non-federal funds. The total funding available for grants will be divided equally between preservation projects and education projects. Consequently, this is the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for PRESERVATION grants. There is a separate NOFO for education grants. Please ensure your application is submitted under the appropriate NOFO. Preservation projects are defined to include all facets of preservation planning and treatment for historic maritime properties, including archeological sites. All funded preservation projects must meet the relevant Secretary of the Interior's Standards and Guidelines for Archeology and Historic Preservation. Activities like acquisition, planning, and documentation are considered preservation projects.
