Dear American Battlefield Protection Program Grant Recipient:
Enclosed are two copies of the Grant Agreement for your Fiscal Year 2006 American Battlefield Protection Program grant administered by the National Park Service (NPS). Also enclosed are various other Federal forms required by our office before the grant period begins. Please have the appropriate official of your organization sign and return the items listed below to my attention no later than July15, 2006, to facilitate the timely obligation and availability of these funds.
Two Copies of the 2006 Historic Preservation Fund Grant Agreement. Both
copies of the enclosed agreement must be signed and returned. NPS will then countersign both copies, keep one, and return the other signed copy to you for your files.
Please read the entire grant agreement carefully. Among the major provisions are Condition #7, requiring detailed progress reports every three months during the grant; Condition #10, concerning publicity and grant publications; Conditions #14 & 15, outlining the NPS-approved scope of work, work/cost breakdown, and deliverables; and Condition #17 requiring NPS concurrence with the selection of consultants having adequate preservation experience.
In addition to the grant agreement and required forms, I have enclosed several additional forms which will be of use to you over the course of your grant. You may wish to make copies of these forms, as they will be required often over the course of your grant. Do notreturn these forms with your grant agreement. 1.
