    The SSNHA Grant Program helps fund agricultural related interpretive projects in the Heritage Area, such as: exhibit development, educational programs, interpretive signage, and marketing and event programming. Proposed projects must demonstrate how they interpret America’s agricultural stories. Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations, local/regional governments, or federally recognized Indian tribes with projects located within the Heritage Area. Projects funded through SSNHA Grant Programs must provide a 1-1 non-federal match to the grant award. Grant awards range from $1,000 to $10,000.

    SSNHA is one of 49 federally designated heritage areas in the nation and is Affiliated Area of the National Park Service. The Heritage Area covers 37 counties in the northeast quadrant of Iowa. Interstate 80 borders it on the south and Interstate 35 borders it on the west. Through a network of sites, programs and events, SSNHA interprets farm life, agribusiness, and rural communities—past and present.
