Historical Commission Approves More Than $2.3 Million
In General Operating Support Grants

July 25, 2013 Trenton, NJ – The New Jersey Historical Commission approved more than $2.3 million in Fiscal Year 2014 general operating support grants to 85 historical organizations, museums, historic sites, archives and libraries in all 21 counties.

These grants will help to enhance educational programming for students, expand historic preservation efforts, facilitate new academic research and scholarship, and raise awareness of New Jersey's essential place in American history.

The general operating support program is designed to help historical organizations care for collections and provide educational programs and services relating to New Jersey history. It also allows the Historical Commission to fulfill its mission to enrich the lives of New Jerseyans by preserving the historical record and advancing interest in, and awareness of, New Jersey's past. This year the commission was able to fund ten more organizations than last year.

The New Jersey Historical Commission's grant programs are determined through an independent, third-party peer review process. General operating support funding is made possible by a portion of the revenue produced by the state's Hotel/Motel Tax legislation.

The full list of Fiscal Year 2014 general operating support recipients is provided below.
