NAPCC Challenge Grant
Is Your Collection Ready to Meet the Challenge?
NOTICE: 2013 Fall grant round is now closed. Next round TBD
American Public Gardens Association announces the 2013 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 13, 2013. 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.
