Grants from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission are now available for qualified museums and historical societies.
The Cultural and Historical Support grant program provides grants to county historical societies and museums as well as annual operating budgets exceeding $100,000 and at least one full-time employee.
“A number of our local museums and county historical societies do an amazing job of preserving our local history for the benefit of current and future generations,” said Senator-elect Judy Ward. “I am hopeful that these organizations can use the grants provided by this program to further their mission of telling the story of our region.”
Awards are based on calculations that use the operating budget from the most recently completed fiscal year.
The last day to apply for the grants is January 25, 2019. All applications must be submitted on the Commonwealth’s Single Application for Assistance system at https://www.esa.dced.state.pa.us. Eligibility information and grant guidelines are available on the PHMC website at https://www.phmc.pa.gov/.
