Grants of up to $5,000 to Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and agencies for projects to preserve, promote, and develop local resources. Applicants should contact staff before completing an application. Funding is intended for projects that preserve or promote cultural, historic, community, or natural resources, or ethnic traditions or folkways. Projects should benefit the Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area, which encompasses the watershed of the Lackawanna River in Lackawanna, Susquehanna, Wayne, and Luzerne counties.

This funding is an investment in Northeastern Pennsylvania that stimulates the region’s economic development, enhances tourism initiatives, strengthens the capacity of community organizations, and increases the quality of life for area residents. Priority will be given to new projects; continuing projects that have not previously been funded by LHV; projects in keeping with LHV’s mission; and projects demonstrating strong partnerships.

Projects for Partnership Grant support can take a variety of formats, including:

  • Exhibits, interpretive displays or panels, trail signage, video or audio displays, on-site interactive media, and digital products.
  • Public programming, activities, events, and outreach activities.
  • Program materials including training materials for docents, interpretive driving and/or walking trails or tours, annotated itineraries, and publications, including brochures and guidebooks;
  • Restoration/renovation of historic structures, “bricks-and-mortar” work.
  • Cultural conservation activities including oral history projects, conservation of traditional folkways, and artifact identification and preservation.
