Request for Proposals

The Freedom's Frontier Tru
stees have established a new program to help support our Partners who want to engage their communities in a discussion of race and equality. The new FFNHA Partner Discussion Grants will provide up to $5,000 depending on the proposal. FFNHA is encouraging its Partners to establish community dialogues centering on critical contemporary themes.

These themes may include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
  • Racial and social injustice.
  • Institutional Racism in our communities.
  • Black Lives Matter. Policing in our communities.
  • The enduring struggle for Freedom: Victors and Victims, then and now.
  • Ways communities can better address these social justice issues such as public arts projects.
You can read about the grants and how you can apply here. Partners have until September 1 to make application. Grants will be decided and paid by October 31. All programming should be complete by March 31, 2021.

We're Still Working From Home
Due to concerns about COVID-19, the Freedom's Frontier National Heritage Area offices and exhibit areas in the Carnegie Building at 9th and Vermont in Lawrence, Kansas, are closed. Freedom’s Frontier staff is working remotely, but can still be reached by phone or email. Contact us.

Some of our Partner sites have begun to reopen, on a limited basis, and with some restrictions. All are working with local, state, regional, and national advice to put safety precautions (limiting numbers of visitors inside, physical distancing for visitors, hand sanitation, intensive cleaning regimes between tour groups, etc.) in place. They will be ready for you to visit!

Please do check with individual sites before making plans to visit or attend programs. You may be asked to purchase a timed entry ticket, and many scheduled events and festivals will remain cancelled.

Freedom’s Frontier Staff, Partners, and Board of Trustees thank you for your understanding, and wish you continuing good health as we all struggle to endure this time of social distancing. We encourage you to still look at the websites for all of our Partner museums, historic sites, and other 
Places to See. We hope that we’ll all be able to soon get back to exploring in person our shared history in Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area.
