The Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections (SCHC) program helps cultural institutions meet the complex challenge of preserving large and diverse holdings of humanities materials for future generations by supporting sustainable conservation measures that mitigate deterioration, prolong the useful life of collections, and support institutional resilience: the ability to anticipate and respond to natural and man-made disasters.

Free Webinar for Tribes - Department of Energy (DOE)
Check out our Funding & Training Calendar to register for a free webinar hosted by the Department of Energy (DOE) called "Powering Your Community with Tribal Energy" to be held on Wednesday, Aug 30th at 10am (Pacific Time).
The DOE says: "Register to attend this free webinar hosted by the Department of Energy! Developing an energy project is multifaceted and involves many different parties including utilities, government agencies, developers, grid operators, and financing parties. In this webinar, speakers will address the steps to developing a one- to two-megawatt energy project located on property owned or controlled by a Tribe to serve the energy needs of the tribal community. Steps will include identifying a site or building structure(s) that is economically feasible; the environmental regulations impacting the project; the local, state and federal permits required to construct and operate the project; selling the electricity produced; leveraging government incentives; how the project will be connected to the grid, operated and maintained, and utilized to the fullest benefit of the tribe, among other considerations."
For Tribes, Native Nonprofits & Mainstream Nonprofit Museums - Collections Assessment for Preservation Grant Opportunity & Free Webinar
Funded by the Institute of Library & Museum Services (IMLS) the Collections Assessment for Preservation Grant (CAP) "provides small and mid-sized museums with partial funding toward a general conservation assessment. The assessment is a study of all of the institution's collections, buildings, and building systems, as well as its policies and procedures relating to collections care. Participants who complete the program receive an assessment report with prioritized recommendations to improve collections care. CAP is often a first step for small institutions that wish to improve the condition of their collections."

"Get me a grant."
Sounds straightforward enough, yet what does it mean?
Usually it means "I have a project. I know it's worthwhile.
I don't have the money to do it myself without help. Can you help me have the resources (money, planning, coaching, project management, reporting guidance, etc.) to make what I am 'seeing' come to life?"
Those and many other thoughts are often behind the phrase 'get me a grant.'
We've all heard of 'seed money' so let's use that image. If money can be used like a seed to grow certain outcomes (and incomes for that matter) - then the first question might be what kind of 'seed money' are you looking for when you are seeking grant funding? In the same way as if you want to plant a garden you want to have certain seeds to grow certain crops - the same is true for certain types of funding that people might often lump together under the thought of "get me a grant." In the case of federal funding awards, for example, an award of federal funding can come in the following forms:
Knowing what kind of specific federal funding award you are seeking or might be eligible to receive is the first step in 'getting a grant' - and in having the resources to accomplish your vision. There are many publicly available sources to search for more info on federal funding and what might best support a project.
And if you're looking for immediate help we can also help clarify your options with a Funding Map for Tribal, Native Nonprofit or Mainstream Nonprofit efforts.
Until next time...

Welcome to our Lord & Associates' Blog called
"If You Can See(d) It - You Can Do It"
It's a play on the words 'see' and 'seed.' As most of our work is centered around both understanding what the organizations we work with see for themselves, their communities, and their futures, and then finding ways to bring in the (seed) funding to make those visions a reality.
Funding Maps We call the first step in the fundraising process creating a "Funding Map" - it's a service we can provide for Tribes, Native Nonprofits & Nonprofits.
A Funding Map provides direction on how to find the 'low-hanging fruit' types of funding that might be otherwise be missed and that can be most easily leveraged from current activities and funding awards you already in place.
Demystifying Terms & Conditions Every profession - including fundraising and grants/proposal and business planning, or financing, or program planning - has their own 'special lingo' that folks get used to using. Yet this same lingo can mystify otherwise straightforward processes for everyday folks too. So in order to help 'demystify' getting the funding people need for worthwhile projects we'll be posting "Word of the Day" entries here from time to time to help clarify and educate upon best practices in fundraising, grant seeking, proposal writing and so forth.
See(d) you next time!
