Plan Ahead for Summer Culture Camps!

Posted on | Back to Posts

Is your organization based in the Bristol Bay region? Are you planning culture camp activities for this summer? Now is the time to be thinking about submitting a proposal for the BBNCEF Cultural Heritage Grant Program.

The Cultural Heritage Grant program starts its rolling application deadline in 2018. Your proposal can be submitted throughout the year and reviewed by the BBNCEF Board on a quarterly basis. We encourage you to plan for 3-6 months when you are working on a proposal and allow 6-8 weeks for review.


The next BBNCEF Board Meeting is in early May 2018. If your organization is planning an activity for summer or early autumn (such as a culture camp) and you will seek grant funding from BBNCEF — please plan ahead.  We encourage you to complete and submit your proposal on or before Monday, April 16.  This will help ensure sufficient time for proposal review and evaluation prior to the May Board meeting.

Proposals received after April 16 may not be reviewed in time for our upcoming Board meeting, so we appreciate your assistance in submitting your complete proposal on or before Monday, April 16.

After the May meeting, the next quarterly Board Meeting is in early August 2018, when the Board of Directors will review and recommend grant awards for the late autumn and winter period.

If you are a current grantee, you may need to submit your final report before we can consider new proposals. To learn more about these programs and the guidelines to apply, please check out the Cultural Heritage Grants section of our website. If you are new to the program, give us a call or send us an email. Contact the BBNCEF Program Officer, Ricardo Lopez, at (907) 265-7852 or

We’re happy to hear your ideas for activities that strengthen cultural heritage in our region!
