USA Equestrian Trust (USAET) will continue to accept grant proposals until May 2nd at 5 PM EST. Funds available for grants include $77,000 reserved for Hunter and Jumper not-for-profit purposes or programs in California and Nevada.
Applicants for this fund should make clear their intention to apply for funds available from this specific reserve.
“Whether you have a small project or larger goal, if you are a not-for-profit it’s worth the effort to apply,” commented Alan F. Balch, USAET President.
Past recipients of grants include those doing equine health research, equestrian land conservation, and educational programs. The Trust welcomes applications for need-based and means-tested worthy equestrian projects and encourages applicants to detail those in their applications.
The Trust has made several improvements to the online application process this year. The revamped form includes a review page on which applicants can both proof and edit their applications before submitting. All applicants must submit a proposed budget for their project as a word processing document. Applications cannot be submitted without one.
Mailed applications MUST be POSTMARKED by May 2nd. No late applications will be considered.
