Grant Seeker Workshops: Cultural Facilities and Historic Preservation
The Vermont Arts Council and the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation are partnering to host three grant seeker workshops in March. Anyone interested in applying for an FY2018 Cultural Facilities or Historic Preservation Grant is encouraged to attend one of the sessions. Participants will learn more about the programs and how to complete a more competitive application.
Cultural Facilities Grants up to $30,000 are awarded to Vermont nonprofit organizations and municipalities to enhance, create, or expand the capacity of an existing building to provide cultural activities for the public. Projects such as wiring, heating, adding accessibility features, lighting, and stage improvements are eligible. This program is administered by the Vermont Arts Council. The deadline for applications is Monday, May 1, 2017.
Historic Preservation Grants up to $20,000 are awarded to Vermont nonprofit organizations and municipalities to repair and rehabilitate historic buildings. In order to qualify, a building must be at least 50 years old eligible for or listed in the National Register of Historic Places. This program is administered by the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation. The deadline for applications is anticipated in the fall of 2017.
