Grants of up to $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations, cultural institutions, and individuals for scholarly and historical research, archiving, and preservation of information about genres of Latin music. Funding is also intended to support anthropology and documentation of music traditions and Latin American folklore. Promoting results of scholarly research, and documenting and preserving information about Latin music genres should be the main focus of the projects.
Grants offered by the Foundation fall into one of two categories:
Projects are encouraged from around the world that advance the archiving and preservation heritage of Latin music genres from the following twentyfour countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador , El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Spain, the United States, Uruguay and Venezuela
Preservation Grants may fund:
For both types of grants, collections that have broad public accessibility (i.e. available at no cost via internet and or/radio or television) will generally be given priority over projects that have limited public access (i.e. solely available on site at no cost or by appointment). Funding requests for project with no public access leading only to commercial release will rarely be considered, but will be evaluated for the collection’s historical significance and/or uniqueness.
Examples of equipment that are considered “supplies” and eligible for funding: DVD-R/CD-R, tapes and cases, replacement tape heads/fuses and archival boxes.
