Funding for Schoolhouse Preservation and Repairs
Raising money is always a challenge for many of our tiny organizations. People who undertake schoolhouse restorations know that fundraising is an on-going and lengthy process while money comes from countless resources to complete the task. Have faith in your mission!
The CSAA has helped many schools along the way by offering small grants to offset costs and/or serve as seed money toward other grants and funding sources. CSAA can serve as one piece of the preservation puzzle should your grant be accepted and approved.
BUILDING GRANTS PROGRAM
1. PRESERVATION GRANT ($1,000) – to be used in restoring or conserving a 1 or 2 room school building. This is for some part of the building ONLY. Not for artifacts or grounds work.
2. DISASTER RELIEF GRANT ($1,000)– This is used to cover damage from an unforeseen occurrence such as a storm, accident, or structural failure. These funds are to help restore the damaged building. It is not for regular maintenance or building improvement.
The complete guidelines and applications for the Building Grants can be found on the CSAA website or use the links below. Both can be submitted electronically and the deadline is January 31st of each calendar year.
