National Park Service Grant Opportunities Webinar

Preserve Arkansas is excited to partner with the National Park Service to bring you more information about their historic preservation grant programs. Do you have a project that might be a good fit for the African American Civil Rights, History of Equal Rights, or Underrepresented Communities grant programs? Join us for a talk by Megan Brown, Chief of the State, Tribal, Local, Plans & Grants Division of the National Park Service, to learn about these funding opportunities and many more. Find out how your organization might serve as a fiscal agent for a partner to take advantage of the grants, and ask questions directly about the application process.
