Call for Proposals: Historic Preservation Education Grants Program – US
The Indiana Humanities is seeking applications for its Historic Preservation Education Grants Program to help promote knowledge of their state’s historic places and the many benefits of preservation, Indiana Humanities, and Indiana landmarks have joined together to offer Historic Preservation Education Grants to Indiana-based tax-exempt organizations.
Indiana Humanities and Indiana Landmarks believe that it’s important for Hoosiers to understand and appreciate the historic structures that surround us. Deeper knowledge of their landmarks helps connect us to their past and provides us with a stronger sense of place. When they know more about their landmarks, they are more likely to value and protect them—which in turn revitalize their communities and add richness to their lives.

Your project must:
Be related to historic places/properties in Indiana and have an educational purpose. Note that the Historic Preservation Education grant is not for actual preservation projects (i.e., “bricks and mortar” work).
Include a preservation professional/expert in implementation and planning. Program personnel must have the necessary qualifications and skills to carry out the project.
Be intended for a public or school audience. Although you may design and market your program for a target audience, you must ensure that it is open to the public at large. Note that they do consider programs delivered in schools and prisons to be public, and in these cases you may offer them to select audiences (i.e., you don’t have to open them to the broader public). Please note you may charge admission to an event funded with a Historic Preservation Education Grant, but the admission should be nominal (they recommend no more than the cost of a movie ticket). They will not fund a project if they feel the cost of admission will prevent it from being a truly public event.
Be presented at a site that is accessible according to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). If the site is not ADA accessible, you must demonstrate how you will make reasonable accommodations.
Include a plan for execution: You must demonstrate that you have the capacity to execute the project you propose. No matter how strong an idea is, they won’t fund it if they don’t have confidence that you can successfully implement it. In your application, be sure to provide sufficient detail as you describe your project ideas and goals. Tell us exactly what you’re going to do and how you’ll do it. Be thoughtful and clear about your timeline. Identify your project team members and historic preservation experts, describe their roles and show how they’ll contribute to your project’s success.
Not exceed $2,500 in requested funding. You may apply for a grant of up to $2,500 (though of course, you may also ask for less). When they award a grant, they look closely at budgets to evaluate where applicants are proposing to spend grant funds. In some cases, they may offer only partial funding.
Demonstrate at least a one-to-one match in cash or in-kind contributions from your organization or other sources (e.g., if you request $2,500, you must show at least $2,500 of matching support). Matching funds must come from non-federal sources and ideally will demonstrate a level of community support for the project. They report to the National Endowment for the Humanities data on how much private investment their grants leverage so they encourage you to be thoughtful about calculating your match and to provide an accurate valuation of what you and your donors/collaborators will bring to the table.
Begin after the project start dates (April 15, 2021, for round 1 and Nov. 15, 2021, for round 2).
Be completed within one year of the award date. If awarded a grant, you must complete project activities within one year of receiving notification (with a final report due 90 days after close).
