The Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area (SdCNHA) is pleased to announce our 2019 grant application cycle is now open.

Grants from the SdCNHA are intended to encourage local cultural and historic heritage preservation activities, educational programs and support Heritage Tourism in Alamosa, Conejos and Costilla counties. Our past grantees have used grant funds to restore historic buildings; provide historical and cultural interpretation; restore or promote scenic, artistic and recreational resources; and to document culturally significant components of the way of life in the San Luis Valley. Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area is administered by a non-profit board of volunteers who represent Alamosa, Conejos and Costilla Counties. Heritage Grants are available to local schools, municipalities, and non-profits annually. Please see our website for our mission, vision, and a list of past grants we’ve awarded.

The selection process is competitive, and applicants are encouraged to develop proposals carefully utilizing the Heritage Area Management Plan Goals and Objectives. You can find these resources on our Management Plan page Funding is available up to $25,000.

If your organization or project supports the efforts and mission of the heritage area we would love to partner with you! Visit our website for more information. Please feel free to contact us if you have an idea for a grant or have any questions about this process at, (719) 580-4070 or at our office located at 623 4th Street in Alamosa.
