APHA Chrome Cash Matching Funds has $50K up for grabs in 2024

With $50,000 in Chrome Cash matching funds available to show organizers in 2024, now more shows than ever before will be able to pay out cash to Paint Horse owners.

Apply for Chrome Cash Matching Funds

We’ve got $50,000 in matching Chrome Cash available for distribution in 2024—your show applies for these funds, and agrees to offer matching cash at the event for eligible Paints! This DOUBLES the benefit to APHA members, while meeting exhibitors where they are—whether that’s at an APHA-approved show or discipline-specific event.

  • Any APHA-approved event can request matching funds between $5,000 to $10,000 per event.
  • All funds must be paid out to APHA-registered horses –Regular Registry and Solid Paint-Bred registered horses are eligible. Owners must be current APHA members.
  • Applications for funding may be submitted beginning November 15, 2023 for the 2024 show year and will be approved by staff discretion based upon their potential for growth and for generating memberships, registrations and transfers. Geographical location will also be a consideration. Completing the application does not guarantee that your event will be awarded Chrome Cash.
