Solicitation Profile
The Zoos, Botanical Gardens and Aquariums Program (ZBGA) is administered by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP). The ZBGA Program, which is funded through annual appropriations from the state Environmental Protection Fund (EPF), provides the stimulus to develop educational, cultural, and recreational programs interpreting our natural heritage as well as support for the permanent collections of eligible institutions, throughout the State of New York. ZBGA grants provide eligible local governments and not-for-profit organizations timely and stable annual funding for operating and program support. Applicants will be evaluated based on the administrative and fiscal strength of the organization, the quality and care of its collections, and the level of service to the public.

In addition to Grants Gateway registration, all non-governmental Not for Profit (NFP) applicants must be Prequalified at the time and date that the application is due. If you are not Prequalified at that time and date, your application will not be considered for funding. For more information about Grants Gateway and Prequalification, please visit the Grants Reform website at

To apply for this opportunity, please go to the Grants Gateway Login and search "Available Opportunities" and look for the grant opportunity described above. If you are already logged in, click on “Apply for Grant Opportunity”.
