SPOOM Grant Program - Application

Click Here to Apply for the 2024 SPOOM Grant Program

The SPOOM Grant Program funds small, mill related projects that support the preservation and interpretation of historic mills and mill related research that furthers knowledge of mills and milling.

Applications will be considered from non-profit organizations for small restoration and repair projects, documentation of mills, research, publications, and interpretive materials.
Applications will be considered from individuals only for research projects.
Applications are encouraged for projects requiring matching funds for public and private programs. SPOOM grants are 50-50 matching grants.
Applicants must be SPOOM members in good standing.

Application Process: Applications can be found at and should be submitted with all supporting information by August 1, 2024. Fill out the application completely providing descriptions of the project and mill, photographs, and a project budget. Submit the application and supporting materials to the SPOOM Website as indicated at the end of the application form.

The number and amount of grants funded is dependent on the funds available, number of applicants, and quality of applications. Awards typically do not exceed $3,000.
Awards will be announced in the fall.
That portion of the project funded by SPOOM must then be completed within a one-year time frame; in other words, no later than September 2025.
Recipients will be reimbursed for the awarded grant amount after SPOOM receives a final report, dated proof of payments, project photographs or a copy of written materials.
Recipients will also be asked to contribute an article on their projects for publication in Old Mill News.
