The Great Basin Heritage Area Partnership offers grants for innovative projects in support of the goals and objectives defined in the Great Basin National Heritage Management Plan. The grant program is designed to provide strategic investments in heritage sites, events, programs, materials and other projects of cultural, educational and recreational value in Millard County, Utah; White Pine County, Nevada; and adjacent tribal lands.
The federal funds for this program are provided to the Partnership through the National Park Service and require a minimum 1:1 match. Since its inception, Grant Program funds have been matched more than four and a half times by grantees, our local partners. In this way, the Partnership multiplies the economic impact of this federal investment within the local community through public private partnerships.
For more information about the Grants Program, read the Grant Guidelines and Grant Forms. The Grant Guidelines have recently been updated. Please read them carefully before submitting an application. Applications for Quick Grants and Transportation Grants are accepted at any time. The application deadline for Project Grants (small and large) and Tonia Harvey Research Grants closed on November 1, 2017. Dates for the next round of applications wiil be announced after Congress finalizes the fiscal year 2018 federal budget.

Please note: Our ability to award grants fully depends upon Congress allocating funding to the Heritage Partnership Program, and thus is subject to change at any time.
