The Monmouth County Historical Commission is seeking 2023 applicants for the History Regrant Program and the Historic Preservation Grant Program, and will offer in-person and virtual application workshops for eligible nonprofit organizations or municipalities.
Two types of grants are available through the History Regrant Program, covering General Operating Support for historical organizations’ overall expenses or Special Project funding for publicly accessible local history projects and programs.
Meanwhile, the Historic Preservation Grants provide matching funds with a minimum of $500 and a $10,000 maximum to restore historic buildings owned by organizations or municipalities.
“On behalf of the Board of County Commissioners, we would like to thank the Monmouth County residents and municipalities for your due diligence in restoring and preserving Monmouth County historical structures,” said Commissioner Lillian Burry, liaison to the Historical Commission. “The County is dedicated to providing funds to those organizations who help maintain and preserve our history through the History Regrant and Historic Preservation Grant Programs.”
The History Regrant Program workshop is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Sept. 12. The Historic Preservation Grant Program workshop will be held at 6 p.m. on Sept. 26. Participants must register for the workshops by contacting Executive Director John Fabiano at email@example.com.
The 2023 History Regrant Program is funded by the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State. The application declaration deadline for the Monmouth County History Regrant Program is Oct. 1, and the completed application is due Oct. 31. The Historic Preservation Grant Program application is due Nov. 4.
