For many years the Minnesota Horse Council has provided funds in various ways to horse projects throughout the state.
In 1996, as a pilot program, the Council decided to set up a formalized project to provide direct funding support to projects that address the problems and needs of the Minnesota horse community.
The Minnesota Horse Council Direct Funding Program will send a check for up to $500 to any non-profit horse-related organization to help cover the expenses of a program or activity they organize which advances the goals of the Minnesota Horse Council.
There is no specific deadline for submitting requests for funding; requests will be evaluated as they are received. Our goal is to complete this evaluation and send a letter of acceptance or rejection to the submitter within 30 days of receiving the request. Direct Funding awards are normally paid after the project is completed. This will be arranged between the recipient and the Horse Council Treasurer.
Direct Funding awards must be used within 6 months. Your organization can only receive this funding once per year.
