Respondents must (1) verify associations and characteristics through descriptive texts that are the result of historical research and (2) submit supporting documentation; e.g., copies of rare documents, photographs, and maps. The majority of the information is submitted in electronic format and used to determine eligibility to become part of the Network. Network to Freedom Program Partners work with the NPS to help validate the efforts of local and regional organizations, making it easier for them to share their expertise and communicate with us and each other. Prospective partners must submit a letter with the following information: • Name and address of the agency, company or organization; • Name, address, and phone, fax, and email information of principal contact; • Abstract not to exceed 200 words describing the partner’s activity or mission statement; and • Brief description of the entity’s association to the Underground Railroad. With this submission, we are requesting one change on page 2 of form 10–946. The change is to clarify the contact information to distinguish between the owner/manager and the person completing the application (if they are different).

Due to staffing shortages and decreased activity in the program, the resulting annualized cost for administering the program are lower than the last reporting period. When vacant positions are filled, the number of responses and costs are expected to rise to previous levels.
