Mississippi Hills has $50,000 available in grant funds for education grant round

From Press Reports

An additional Mississippi Hills grant round with $50,000 available is now open during the dates of May 1-June 30, 2016 for Education grants only. These grants can be used to help defray some of the costs associated with school field trips during the 2016-17 school year.

“We had a great response to our first grant round,” said MHNHA Executive Director Mary Cates Williams. ” However, we had $50,000 in allotted grant money left so the board decided to go ahead with another grant round.”

The Education grants, previously titled transportation grants, are open to all schools districts, school support groups and non- profit cultural/heritage attractions within the Mississippi Hills NHA. Choctaw County is within the Mississippi NHA.

Requests of up to $1,000 per trip will be considered and multiple trips may be requested on the same application. Funds must be used for educational field trip transportation and interpretation costs only.
