Grants to USA government agencies, nonprofit organizations, tribal governments, and IHEs in eligible areas support the preservation of sites where Japanese Americans were detained during World War II. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting a proposal. Grant funds may be used to support projects to identify, research, evaluate, interpret, protect, restore, repair, and acquire historic confinement sites. The goal of the program is to preserve these sites as a testament to the Nation’s commitment to equal justice under the law and for present and future generations to learn and gain inspiration from these sites.

Confinement sites eligible for funding are located in the states of Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

The term historic confinement sites is defined as the ten War Relocation Authority sites (Gila River, Granada, Heart Mountain, Jerome, Manzanar, Minidoka, Poston, Rohwer, Topaz, and Tule Lake), as well as other historically significant locations, as determined by the Secretary of the Interior, where Japanese Americans were detained during World War II.
