Documenting AAPI History in California

In January 2020, the Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places approved the Multiple Property Documentation Form (MPDF) for the Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in California, 1850-1970 Multiple Property Submission (MPS). The MPS includes three historic contexts for eight Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities.

The Office of Historic Preservation has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for development of an Amended Submission to the MPDF for historical resources associated with AAPI in California. The MPDF Amended Submission will include three additional historic contexts for the eight communities and period of significance previously established. At the proposer's discretion, the Amended Submission may also include one additional AAPI community and a possible extension of the period of significance.

The Request for Proposals will be posted on Cal eProcure shortly, and is available by request. Questions about the RFP must be submitted in writing by 5:00 pm on Friday, March 13, 2020. Proposals are due by 5:00 pm on Monday, March 30, 2020. Any questions regarding this RFP should be directed to Amy Crain, Project Lead, at amy.crain@parks.ca.gov .
