We are proud to offer a mini-grant program to help members accomplish some great interpretive projects throughout the Heartland Region. On an annual basis, the mini-grant committee considers funding for interpretive projects and programs completed within the region. The fund, up to $500, may be used for things such as exhibit design and productions, workbooks, equipment, living history props, research, planning and educational materials. Projects are evaluated based on four different criteria areas: Preservation, Interpretive Value, Uniqueness, and Project Viability.
Start planning out your projects now! Applications are due February 28, 2019 and grants are awarded at the end of March, 2019. Applicants selected for funding will have until April 1 of the following year to complete the project and required project completion materials.
