The National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program (NTF) is pleased to announce that there will be $127,000 in grant funds available this year. In collaboration with the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), the NTF will be offering competitive grants ranging between $1000 and $10,000. Funds can be used for preservation and restoration of buildings associated with the Underground Railroad (UGRR), for interpretation, and for historical research related to Network to Freedom listings. Only Network to Freedom sites, programs, and facilities are eligible to apply. 

New listings, accepted from the January 2020 round of applications are eligible to apply.

Preference will be given to those listings that have not previously received Network to Freedom grants and to those with matching funds.

Soon, the grant application and instructions will be available online on the ASALH website.  The completed application will be due April 30, 2020.

All proposed projects will need to be completed by June 30, 2021.

For further information, contact the NTF coordinator for your state.
