$10,000 Funding Opportunity: Tourism Cares 2012 Worldwide Grant open to accepting applications

Tourism Cares is accepting proposals for the 2012 Worldwide Grant Program. The grant program provides funding suport of $10,000 to each selected grant recipient.

Bona fide, nonprofit, tax-exempt public charities may apply for projects to conserve, preserve, or restore the site, or educate visitors to the site. These requests may include brick-and-mortar capital improvement projects, or educational programs that will enhance interpretation of the site.

Required Eligibility Criteria:
The organization requesting grant funding must be located:
  • in the United States, and be classified as a bona fide non-profit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) public charity by the Internal Revenue Service, or be a federally-recognized American Indian or Alaska Native tribe within the United States
  • outside the United States, and be classified by the country’s official taxing authority as a non-profit, tax-exempt public charity
Note: Applications from organizations working with, or in, developing countries are welcome
The Worldwide Grant Application is only available on-line. Paper applications sent in by mail or fax, or e-mailed as attachments, will not be considered. Also, any items submitted under separate cover will not be considered.

The first step of the application process is the Letter of Inquiry phase; this is when a bona fide nonprofit, tax-exempt public charity fills out the Letter of Inquiry in the on-line application and includes the Required Attachments. Once Tourism Cares has verified and reviewed the applications submitted at the Step One – Initial Letter of Inquiry Phase for a particular deadline, some organizations are invited to submit a Step Two – Full Proposal, which is the next step of the application process.
Deadline: 2 July 2012.
