A&H Grant Program - FAQs FY2022
A&H Grant Program - FY2022
A: Follow the instructions on this link from ZoomGrants (A&H staff cannot access your account information). The link also provides answers to many common ZoomGrants questions.
A: For this FY2022 grant cycle, we plan to have one round only for projects that occur between October 1, 2021 and September 30, 2022. We may end up offering an additional round if necessary.
A: Yes. The Arts & History website translates into many different languages (see the bottom right corner). Contact Jennifer Yribar if you need additional services, such as for translation or accessibility challenges. Please allow at least 72 hours to process your request.
A: Yes. The Grant Information Session will be on Zoom, May 4, 2021 at 12noon. You can attend the live version here or access the recorded version shortly thereafter on the A&H website. Please read through the Grant Guidelines and the Grant Criteria before attending or watching the training.
A: No. Unfortunately, all projects with a venue must be within Boise City Limits. This requirement is because those who live within these boundaries provide the funds for the A&H Grant Program.
A: We have an ever-growing pool of applicants and want to make sure new applicants have a fair chance at receiving a grant award. If our grant funding grows, we may revisit this policy.
A: Covid-19 has made planning more challenging than ever. We are hopeful that it will have less of an impact this year, but it is difficult to predict for certainty. For now, check these resources as you work through your project ideas:
- City of Boise's Covid-19 Orders and Community Information
- Central District Health - Information about Submitting a Gathering/Event Form
- City of Boise Special Event Requirements
We also advise having a backup plan in case new Covid-19 related restrictions develop. Should conditions change that affect an approved grant proposal, we will work with you to figure out options.
A: The Grant Review team consists of (1) those approved through our Call for Grant Reviewers; (2) Arts & History Commission and Advisory Team members; (3) occasionally, those appointed who have expertise in a certain field. All grant reviewers are required to report and recuse themselves for review of a particular grant if they have a conflict of interest (a financial or personal relationship that could potentially bias their review).
A: You will be notified by email from the address on your application by early September 2021.
A: Yes. You can request a draft review from the grants manager before you submit the grant as long as it is at least a week before the grants are due. When you are notified about whether or not you received the grant, you will be provided with some overall feedback. You can request more detailed feedback by contacting the grants manager.
A: Please contact the grants manager.
