The National Park Service (NPS) and the National Park Foundation (NPF) are excited to announce a request for proposals for the Women In Parks Innovation and Impact Grant program funded by the National Park Foundation.
The goal of the Innovation and Impact Grants is to support projects and programs that help the National Park Service share a more comprehensive American narrative that includes the voices of women whose vision, tenacity, and resilience moved them to climb mountains, take down barriers, shape history, protect the environment, and lead social movements. The initiative will increase awareness about the 19th Amendment’s centennial and highlight stories of women who continue to shape our world.
Parks and programs are encouraged to submit proposals for a wide range of projects including (but not limited to):
- Women’s history research, interpretation or program delivery
- Expanding women’s representation in diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives
- Preservation and access to women’s history collections
- Internships that support the 19th Amendment centennial/women in parks activities
- Scientific/technical activities led by female NPS staff; or other highlights of women NPS trailblazers.
Please see the 2020 Request for Proposals for Women In Parks Innovation and Impact Grant program funded by the National Park Foundation, found here. Grant requests may not exceed $25,000 per park or regional program office. Applications are due no later than Friday, February 7, 2020 (midnight EST). Applicants will be notified of award selections by early March.
