Google Maps APIs Grants Program

Access the Premium Licence to build customised maps using HTML5 and Javascript.

Google Earth Outreach allows nonprofit organisations to access the Google Maps APIs Premium licence through Google for Nonprofits. For most public uses, the Google Maps APIs Standard licence is sufficient. A Google Maps APIs Grant is required for organisations that wish to deploy Google Maps APIs on an internal network or need to accommodate occasional spikes (>25,000 map loads/day) on public maps. Consult Google Maps APIs FAQs to determine if the standard, free version of Google Maps APIs is right for your organisation.

The Google Maps APIs are best suited for use by developers. If your organisation is not currently working with a developer, we suggest exploring Google’s many other free mapping tools along with the Google Earth Outreach tutorials.

Visit Google Maps/Google Earth APIs Terms of Service (for standard use) and Google Maps API for Business – Purchase Agreement (for licensed use) for questions about usage.
