Grant Applications

Important Update

Thank you for your interest in National Park Foundation (NPF) grants. NPF has transitioned to a new grants management database and our previous online application system is no longer available. Please reach out to your NPF program contact or [email protected] for instructions on how to register in the new system. Please be reminded that this system is open to National Park Service units and existing NPS partners only.


Service Corps Funding Opportunity

The National Park Foundation (NPF) is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) to support the work of organizations dedicated to running service corps programs across the country. Service corps offer participants an opportunity to work for several weeks within a national park site to address the mission critical issues of the National Park Service (NPS).

Again this year, NPF will be awarding grants to parks and/or partner organizations under two models. The first is to support the continuation of existing planned service corps crews with the explicit goal of extending terms of service for participants. The second model is to support unfunded service corps crews, similar to years past. Applications are due no later than Friday, February 11th (midnight ET). Please see the request for proposals for more information.

Optional Informational Call:

An optional informational call to discuss this RFP and the proposal process is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, December 16th at 3:00 pm ET. Any changes to the date and time will be updated on this website. All parties interested in submitting a proposal are welcome to attend the call, but it is not a requirement.
