Grant Applications

Important Update

Thank you for your interest in National Park Foundation grants. NPF is transitioning to a new grants management database in May 2020, at which point our current online application system will no longer available. This site will be updated with information about the new system in May; please check back for updates at that time. In the meantime, please reach out to your National Park Foundation program contact with any questions or concerns.


Film Planning Project Management Consultant

The National Park Foundation, in partnership with the National Park Service (NPS), is pleased to announce that it is accepting proposals for a Film Planning Project Management Consultant to support the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site (FRDO). The selection of a Consultant(s) will ensure NPS is engaging with industry leaders to coordinate the selection of a production company to develop the film. Once produced, the film will revitalize and improve the visitor experience and orientation to the Park. Please see the request for proposals here for more information.
