Special Projects Grants

  • Erection of historic site markers


  • Museum exhibits

  • Programs supporting veterans' medical centers or health providers
  • Oral histories of active military or veterans
  • Flagpole installation to fly the American flag at a national site
  • Erection of a veterans' monument

The Special Projects Grants program is open to public charity 501(c)(3) entities. Grant applications of $1,000 - $2,000 are encouraged, with maximum matching grant awards of $10,000.  Projects must be completed within one year of initial grant funding.
