The Utah Department of Cultural & Community Engagement is seeking applications for its Cultural Capital Grant Program to invest in capital projects for community facilities in Utah.
Donor Name: Utah Department of Cultural & Community Engagement
County: All Counties
Type of Grant: Grant
Grant Size: up to $350,000
Priority will be given to projects that demonstrate existing building/structural components that are in critical condition, repairs or replacements to existing interior systems that are necessary for health and safety reasons, and/or new construction. Additionally, projects that can be moved ahead quickly so that the funding can be allocated and spent within the timeframe. Additional priorities include:
- Project applications that show the compelling need for the capital investment will be given priority
- Investments in historic renovations of buildings that are culturally significant to the community.
- Requests to upgrade a facility to provide or improve ADA access.
- Small grant requests from organizations in rural Utah with little or no other support to upgrade things such as HVAC or faulty wiring.
Note: The purchase of high efficiency heating and cooling systems (Energy Star) for the approved replacement equipment is encouraged to promote energy conservation.
A total of $4,000,000 is budgeted for this program. Grant requests up to $350,000 will be considered. Smaller grants will also be considered based on the total requested project size. Grants will be awarded based on funds available and alignment with priorities.
- For projects that total over $50,000, CCE will fund no more than 30% of the total projected amount or $50,000, whichever is higher – with a maximum possible award of $350,000
- For projects up to $50,000 total, this grant may be used to fund the entire capital project (i.e. if an HVAC system costs $22,000, this grant could be awarded for $22,000).
Legislative Pass-Through/Direct Line-Item Funding. Organizations that have received pass-through allocation for this capital project may be subject to additional review, and any award amount may be adjusted with relation to other funding received through legislative appropriation.
- 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations
- Municipalities, government agencies
