To receive a competitive application, you must submit a Letter of Intent. We accept Letters of Intent on a rolling basis but we will accept your Letter of Intent up to 7 business days prior to your target application deadline.
To submit a Letter of Intent, use our Google Form or email your answers to the questions listed below. State Historical Fund staff will contact you upon receipt.
Once submitted, our staff will review the information within one business week and let you know if your project receives a green, yellow, or red light.
Green projects can proceed. You will receive a link to the competitive grant application.
Yellow projects meet with our staff to clarify project components. Staff will provide a green or red light following additional information.
Red projects do not align with our grant program’s requirements.
Competitive Grant Deadlines
