Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area 2024 grant cycle opens
THE Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area (SdCNHA) has opened its 2024 grant cycle application window. Applications for funding will be accepted through June 1 and grants awarded will be announced in October.
Grants awarded from SdCNHA are intended to encourage local cultural and historic heritage preservation activities and educational programs, and support heritage tourism within the heritage area. Past grantees have used grant funds to restore historic buildings; provide historical and cultural interpretation; restore or promote scenic, artistic and recreational resources; and to document culturally significant components of the way of life in the heritage area.
Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area is administered by a non-profit board of volunteers who represent Alamosa, Conejos and Costilla Counties. Heritage area grants are available annually to local schools, municipalities, and non-profits.
The selection process is competitive, and applicants are encouraged to develop proposals carefully utilizing SdCNHA’s Management Plan Goals and Objectives. You can find these resources here.
Funding is available up to $25,000. The local heritage area funds development projects, archeology projects, survey and planning projects, and education projects.
Please contact the Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area if you have an idea for a grant or have any questions about the grant process. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (719) 580-7366.
