Partnership Grants


Minnesota Historical Society (MNHS) has the responsibility to manage public grant funds in accordance with Minnesota Statutes, Federal regulations, the grant guidelines, and the grant agreement (contract). MNHS is also expected to administer grant programs honestly, objectively, and to public benefit. MNHS expects grantees to follow the stipulations, conditions, approved scopes of work, and approved budgets documented as stated in the grant agreement (contract). Grantees can expect Minnesota Historical Society to provide assistance if a grantee has questions about the requirements of the grant agreement and when there are unforeseen circumstances.
The Minnesota Historical Society’s Grants Office has the right to withhold, cancel, or revoke in whole or in part awarded grants if a grantee:
  • cancels, suspends, or significantly changes the scope and activities of a funded grant
  • fails to comply with the terms of the grant agreement
  • owes an overdue final report for previously-received funding from any of the many grant programs of the Minnesota Historical Society
  • fails to complete the grant in a timely manner
  • demonstrates inadequate financial management or oversight
Grantees who fail to respond to repeated requests to return signed agreements or who fail to respond to repeated requests for required information will be given a 30-day notice prior to revocation of the grant award, in whole or in part, or cancellation of the grant agreement. Grantees that breach the terms of the grant agreement will be given proposed remedies to ensure successful completion of the grant. These remedies may include revocation of portions of the grant award.
