Message from Kara Miyagishima,Historian with the National Park Service-Denver

We are pleased to announce that Japanese American Confinement Sites grant applications are now available for the preservation & interpretation of U.S. confinement sites where Japanese Americans were detained during World War II.

Grants will be awarded to organizations and entities working to preserve historic Japanese American confinement sites & their history, including:
-private nonprofit organizations
-educational institutions
-state, local, & tribal governments
-other public entities

Grants will be awarded through a competitive process & require a non-Federal match in at least a 2:1 ratio ($2 Federal to $1 non-Federal match).

For Fiscal Year 2009, Congress appropriated $1 million for the use of this grant program.

Informational meetings about the grant program will be held across the nation during the next two months.

Please visit the grant website or contact one of the regional offices about times and locations.
