Historical Society of New Mexico Grant Program

The purpose of the HSNM grant program is to help individuals, organizations or institutions complete projects consistent with the purposes of HSNM: research, develop and disseminate information about the history of NM and the southwest; promote and foster interest in the history of New Mexico; encourage preservation of historic objects or property. The maximum grant amount is $1,000 and no matching amount is required.  Individuals and organizations must be current with their membership dues in order to be considered for a grant.

All applications will be considered but HSNM encourages applications that relate to unique subjects of NM history, indicate financial or in-kind support, coordination and cooperation with other community groups, or that help introduce youth to New Mexico history.  A new requirement of the grant application is two letters of support.

Applications are accepted through May 31, 2017, and applicants should be advised of the status of the application not later than August 1, 2017. Projects, or the portion for which the grant is requested, should be completed between August 1, 2017 and July 31, 2018, though a later completion date is permissible.
