2018 Heritage Grant Opportunities

Call for Grant Applications

The Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area (SdCNHA) is pleased to announce our 2018 call for Heritage Grant applications. Our grants are available to local organizations working to promote the mission of the National Heritage Area.

Our desire is to share the culturally diverse stories of our area, because we believe that stories are the backbone of identity and culture. The work of our past grantees has been to preserve, protect, interpret, and promote the unique stories of people, places, and resources within this area and the San Luis Valley.

Deadline for Submission:

Heritage Grants are available to local organizations and applications are available on our website (sdchna.org). Submissions for our 2018 call for grant applications will be accepted starting March 1, 2017. The deadline to submit a grant application is June 1, 2017. Funding available up to $25,000.

Funding Scope:

Grants from the SdCNHA are intended to encourage local cultural and historic heritage preservation activities and educational programs and support Heritage Tourism in Alamosa, Conejos and Costilla counties. Our past grantees have used grant funds to restore historic buildings; provide interpretation; restore or promote scenic and recreational resources; and used various forms to document culturally significant components of the way of life in the San Luis Valley. Please see our website for our mission, vision, and a list of past grants we’ve awarded.

The selection process is competitive, and applicants are encouraged to develop proposals carefully utilizing the Heritage Area Management Plan Goals and Objectives. You can find these resources on our Management Plan page. All recipients will be required to spend down their match prior to financial award.
