FY2021 ABPP Battlefield Land Acquisition Grant

The National Park Service’s American Battlefield Protection Program (NPS ABPP) supports the identification, research, evaluation, interpretation, and protection of historic battlefields and associated sites on a national, State, and local level.

NPS ABPP offers Battlefield Land Acquisition

Grants (BLAGs) to assist state and local governments and, when applicable, their nonprofit partners acquire and preserve eligible Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and Civil War battlefield lands.

Funding for the BLAG program is made available from the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and is awarded competitively.

Each grant requires a dollar-for-dollar non-Federal match.

Grants are available to purchase 1) land in fee simple or 2) permanent, protective interests in land (easements) at Civil War battlefields listed in the Civil War sites Advisory Commission's (CWSAC) Report on the Nation's Civil War Battlefields (1993) and the principal battlefields and associated sites of the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 identified in NPS ABPP’s Report to Congress on the Historic Preservation of Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Sites in the United States (2007) (“Survey Reports”).

Applications are accepted and evaluated on a rolling basis.

Applications for acquisition of lands at eligible battlefield and associated sites rated as Preservation Priority I and II properties will be given precedence in processing, evaluation, and award recommendations.

Eligible battlefields and associated sites (“eligible sites”) have been assigned a battlefield or “survey” code in the aforementioned (“Survey Reports”).

Boundaries for most eligible battlefields are defined in NPS survey data.

Eligible acquisitions should lie within the boundaries of eligible sites, with priority given to proposals to acquire land within the “core” area of the battlefield.

Battlefield boundary and “core” area maps are available on the NPS ABPP website.

Applications to acquire lands associated with eligible sites without survey-defined boundaries, including sites identified as “Needing Further Study” in NPS ABPP’s Report to Congress on the Historic Preservation of Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Sites in the United States (2007), must select defensible boundaries for the site according to guidelines provided in National Register Bulletin No.

Guidelines for Identifying, Evaluating and Registering America’s Historic Battlefields and/or National Register Bulletin No.

Defining Boundaries for National Register Properties.

If the land to be acquired overlaps the battlefield boundary, a majority (more than 50%) of the land must be within the boundary for the proposal to be eligible for funding.
