Notice of Grant Availability

In 2006, the US Congress established the Northern Río Grande National Heritage Area (NRGNHA) (Río Arriba, Santa Fe, and Taos counties) to help tribal and local governments and other public and private entities conserve and sustain cultural, historical, archaeological, and natural resources.  To meet the Congressional mandate, NRGNHA, Inc. developed a grant program to make federal funds available to support a variety of projects in the Heritage Area.

The mission of the NRGNHA is to help sustain the communities, languages, cultures, traditions, heritage and environment of Northern New Mexico.

Communities, tribal and local governments, land grant associations, non-profit organizations, youth programs, historical and archaeological societies, and preservation groups are encouraged to apply for grant funding up to $10,000 that support the NRGNHA’s mission and goals.

An original & one (1) copy of the entire application is DUE by September 23, 2022!
