The American Morgan Horse Association's 2017 Breed Promotion Grant program that is offered to Morgan enthusiasts for their promotional efforts is now open for submissions.
This grant, which was revised in 2016 and replaced the former Trade Show Funding that was offered to AMHA clubs, is open to any AMHA club, organized Morgan group, Morgan barn, or AMHA-affiliated organization (individuals are ineligible). At least one member of the applying party must be a current AMHA member and all horses involved must be registered Morgans. AMHA will award up to $10,000 each year and will consider requests of all sizes. Applicants may request funding for any Morgan breed promotion purpose. This year, AMHA received grant requests from 37 applicants and awarded monies to 18 recipients.
The applicant needs to make a compelling grant request and include information regarding the size of the audience or reach of the program. Applications must include a full proposal of the idea, budget details, and proof of any advertising collateral or materials that will be used to promote the event and/or program.
AMHA reserves the right to award as many or as few grants as deemed appropriate based upon the grant requests received.
The grant application opens on Saturday, October 1, 2016 and closes at 5 p.m. Sunday, January 15, 2017. Grant recipients are required to file a written summary of the activities the grant funded within 45 days of expending the funds.
