Grant Application Review Meetings

The Small Matching review meeting has been rescheduled.

The Small Matching Grant Panel will review and score eligible FY2025 Small Matching grant applications on October 4, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to conclusion. There will be no second day. 

This public meeting will be conducted via webinar. The staff of the Division of Historical Resources will present summaries of their technical review of each application. Panel members may direct questions to applicants during the webinar, and staff recommends that a representative be available on the webinar to represent their proposed project and answer any questions. No presentations may be given by applicants, due to time constraints. The applications will be reviewed by their application review number (numbered geographically, from Escambia County in Northwest Florida to Monroe County in Southwest Florida).

Advance registration for webinar participation is recommended. Register for the webinar by clicking this link: Additional registration information can be found here.
