NAPCC Challenge Grant

American Public Gardens Association

Is Your Collection Ready to Meet the Challenge?

Fall 2014 grant deadline is September 15. CURRENT ROUND IS NOW CLOSED. 

American Public Gardens Association announces the 2014 NAPCC Challenge Grant, awarding a limited number of $1,000 grants to successful first-time NAPCC applicants.

The recent round of grants is made possible through the generous support of Mt. Cuba Center, NAPCC holder of Trillium and Hexastylis Collections.

Purpose: The NAPCC Challenge Grant was established through an anonymous donation to encourage small- and mid-sized APGA member gardens to apply for participation in the North American Plant Collections Consortium. We recognize that gardens invest considerable time and effort into developing a successful collections program. This grant is intended to offset expenses of NAPCC application and review process, with any remainder going toward curation of the collection.

Grant Amount: $1,000. No matching funds required. Limit of one grant per institution, first-time NAPCC applicants only.

Grant Deadline: September 15, 2014.  Grant request must be submitted in conjunction with a complete NAPCC application.
Please note: funds are limited. Grants are considered on a first-come, first-served basis determined by the date on which a complete NAPCC application is received in the APGA office.


  • APGA Institutional Members in good standing
