2. Include a study of Veterans or Service members interred in one of VA’s national cemeteries or in one of the VA grant-funded State, Territorial, or Tribal cemeteries.

3. Foster engagement in the communities surrounding one or several of these cemeteries.

4. Tell the stories of those interred in these cemeteries with a focus on underrepresented Veterans or Service members, to include, but not limited to, Veterans or Service members underrepresented by race, ethnicity, or identity as well as Veterans or Service members from our LGBTQ+ community, from any period of American history.

Priorities:
Competitive Preference Priorities (CPP) for fiscal year (FY) 2022 and any subsequent year in which we make awards from the list of applications from this annual competition, VA will prioritize applications that align with specific VLGP initiatives, which will be noted as CPPs.

We will award up to an additional three points to an application if the application meets one or more of the following CPPs, described in a one-page abstract submitted with the application and listed on the VLGP Profile Form:
1. Successfully showcasing Veterans or Service members interred in these cemeteries with a focus on underrepresented Veterans or Service members, to include, but not limited to, Veterans or Service members underrepresented by race, ethnicity, identity, as well as Veterans or Service members from our LGBTQ+ community, from any period of American history.

2. Creatively highlighting interred Veterans and Service members who have never been studied or researched in previous VLGP project proposals.

3. Maximizing the use of best practices in digital scholarship, pedagogy, scholarly communication and digital public engagement.

New CPPs will be outlined in each NOFA each FY it is announced.
