These Mini-Grants are available for new heritage and preservation-related programs, activities, products, and events. We encourage Mini-Grant proposals that include collaborative partnerships and enhanced heritage tourism, preservation, and/or the stewardship of historical, cultural, and natural resources.

ALTSCHA also encourages proposals that foster Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility; support the development of projects for the US 250th anniversary; are consistent with regional thematic heritage-tourism related initiatives; include new technology, foster environmentally-friendly and sustainable practices at heritage sites, and/or create new heritage-related programming in the arts.

Non-profit organizations and municipalities are eligible to apply for projects that will be located within the boundaries of the Heritage Area. The maximum award is $5,000 and applicants must provide a one-to-one match (any combination of Cash or In-Kind).

This grant round is expected to be highly competitive; partial funding awards are likely. To learn more, applicants must send a representative to attend a mandatory zoom workshop on Wednesday, September 21 at 3 p.m. Please send an e-mail to [email protected] to register, to discuss your project, to ask questions, or for more information!
