Arts, Humanities and Historic Preservation (AHHP) grant funds are available for community organizations and local governments seeking supplementary funds for local arts, history and humanities projects. Eligible projects in the arts include public exhibitions, performances, publications, lectures and video, film or slide documentaries. These activities may encompass dance, theater, music, architecture, folk arts, literary arts, and visual arts. Humanities and local history projects involve branches of learning that deal with human thought and culture, excluding the sciences. They include but are not limited to history, languages, literature, poetry, and philosophy. Specifically, history projects are similar in scope with specific activities directed at research, documentation, and preservation of the unique cultural history of Sauk County. The AHHP grant is not for "Brick & Mortar" projects. Also, the AHHP grant supported activities must culminate in tangible services presented to the community within 12 months of when the grant was awarded. Public access to the project, program, or service is a requirement of the grant.
Awards may not exceed $5,000. Applications are due no later than 4:30 p.m. on February 24, 2014, to the Sauk County UW-Extension office. The application form details the guidelines for eligibility as well as the criteria used for evaluation. All applications must be prepared using our grant application form (see link below).
