Facilities Grant Seeker Workshops for FY2021

The Vermont Arts Council and the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation are partnering to host free grant seeker workshops. Staff from Vermont nonprofit organizations and municipalities interested in applying for facilities grants for the upcoming FY2021 Cultural Facilities or Historic Preservation Grant programs are encouraged to attend. Cultural Facilities Grants support the enhancement, creation, or expansion of the capacity of an existing building to provide cultural activities for the public. Historic Preservation Grants help to fund rehabilitation of the historic buildings that are a vital part of Vermont’s downtowns, villages, and rural communities as well as its iconic landscape.
