Cultural Resources’ Moose Plate Grant round closes March 31
The deadline to apply for Conservation License Plate grants through the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources is March 31, 2011.
The Department of Cultural Resources operates separate “Moose Plate” grant programs through its three divisions: the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources, the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts and the New Hampshire State Library.
While the projects funded by each division have specific requirements, all focus on awarding grants to projects that involve restoration, preservation, and/or conservation of publicly owned items significant to New Hampshire’s cultural heritage. Depending on the grant program applied to, requests may be made for amounts up to $20,000.
For information about each division’s specific grant program, visit www.nh.gov/nhculture/grants.htm. For more information about Conservation License Plates, including how to purchase a “Moose Plate,” visit www.mooseplate.com.
New Hampshire’s Department of Cultural Resources includes the State Council on the Arts, the Film and Television Office, the Division of Historical Resources, the State Library and the Commission on Native American Affairs. The Department strives to nurture the cultural well-being of our state. From the covered bridges and traditional music of our past to the avant-garde performances and technological resources of today and tomorrow, New Hampshire’s culture is as varied as its geography and its people. This strong cultural base—which truly has something for everyone—attracts businesses looking for engaged workforces, provides outstanding educational opportunities and creates communities worth living in.
