Who is eligible to apply...
Eligible applicants are State and local governments. Private nonprofit organizations seeking to acquire battlefield land with assistance from this program must apply in partnership with the State or local government agency that has jurisdiction over the proposed acquisition parcel. The government agency may then subgrant the Federal funds to the nonprofit organization. In any case where a local government or a private non-profit organization acquires land or an interest in land with assistance from this program, it must convey an acceptable perpetual protective easement on the land to the State Historic Preservation Office or other governmental agency acceptable to the National Park Service.
Prior to the expenditure of grant funds for the purchase of real property, a current appraisal must be obtained. Appraisal preparation, documentation and reporting must be made in conformance with the standards and practices of the Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions (UASFLA), as codified in 49 CFR 24.103, and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP Standards 1 and 2) published by the Interagency Land Acquisition Conference.
