Grant Programs For Historic Theatres
Once again a New Year has arrived, and as we go into the new year, a new opportunity for fresh grant money to restore your historical theater will become available, begining in January of 2006. Grants are available for preservation and/or conservation work on nationally significant intellectual and cultural artifacts and nationally significant historic structures and sites that include historical theaters.
Grants are awarded through a competitive process and require a dollar non-federal match, which can be cash, donated services, or use of equipment. The grant and the non-federal match must be expended during the grant period (generally 2 to 3 years) to execute your theater restoration project. The minimum grant request for historic property projects is $250,000 federal share. The maximum grant request for all projects is $1 million federal share. The Grants Panel may, at its discretion, award less than the minimum grant request.
As a Performing Art Centers Of Indiana client, one of their consultants will set up an appointment with your organization, to discuss the 2006 application grants package process and determine if your organization qualifies under the grants criteria guidelines. Their consulting firm will then assist you with the application grants package and help determine your organizations financial and restoration budget needs, for your project.
