Additional Geographic Information:

Map of the Columbia Basin Trust region:

- If the building is owned by a government, Minor Capital Arts funding is not available for structural repairs, such as to the foundation, walls, or roof
- CKCA cannot fund capital projects for private businesses or on private property, and funding cannot be used for ongoing maintenance.
- Capital projects cannot be combined with non-capital projects. For example, if your organization wishes to purchase a sound system and then create a performance that would use the sound system, these would be considered two separate projects and may fit within two different funding programs.
- You cannot apply to both the Columba Basin Trust Non-profit Tech Grants program and this program for the same project or equipment purchase.
