The National Park Service has awarded nearly a quarter-million dollars in grants to projects in Arkansas that help preserve and interpret sites that were used to confine Japanese Americans during World War II.

The grants announced Thursday are among $2.9 million awarded nationally. In Arkansas, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock received a $220,000 grant for its cemetery conservation project at the Rohwer Relocation Center in Desha County. The Rohwer center held more than 8,000 Japanese Americans during the war.

The Central Arkansas Library System received a $26,000 grant for its textile conservation and preservation project, also at Rohwer.

The park service says the goal of the grant program is to education people about the injustice of the United States' confinement program during the war.
