NPF, in partnership with the National Park Service (NPS), is pleased to announce that it is accepting proposals for a Project Management Consultant to support NPF’s Latino Heritage Initiative. The Latino Heritage Initiative aims to engage Hispanic, Latino, and Latinx audiences in national parks and programs by creating a more relevant and inclusive national park visitor experience that tells a broader story of the Latino experience and contributions in our nation’s history. This endeavor will identify, expand, and implement programs at park sites that honor the Latino experience and history in the US with a primary focus on four “pilot parks” with the opportunity to expand to additional park units identified by NPS that fall within the subject matter profile.

The Consultant will support NPF’s and NPS’s work to successfully execute a variety of projects that include the following: preserve and restore historic structures, incorporate new scholarship into educational and interpretive content, upgrade new and existing technologies to increase visitor accessibility and modernize the visitor experience, and create a partnership network. The Consultant will also support the activation of programs and events that aim to engage Latino audiences.

NPF seeks proposals from individuals and companies with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

All applications will be reviewed by a selection committee comprised of representatives from the NPS and the NPF. Selection will be based on the applicant’s ability to meet and exceed program requirements and required outcomes.

The selected Consultant(s) will enter into an agreement with the NPF, which will serve as the contracting party and funder of this position.
