Grants to New York nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and nonprofit academic institutions in eligible counties to install roadside markers that recognize historic people, places, and things. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to applying. Eligible proposals for roadside markers will commemorate a historically significant person or event from the time period of 1740 to 1918.
Eligible Counties are grouped into "regions," as outlined below. Each grant cycle is for a different group of "regions," as outlined further in the Pre-Application Information section below.
Eligible Counties for the current round of funding:
Region 1: Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens, Richmond
Region 2: Naussau, Suffolk
Region 3: Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Westchester
The William G. Pomeroy Foundation strongly believes that historic markers play an important role in local historic preservation by serving a dual purpose. They educate the public and foster historic tourism, which in turn can provide much needed economic benefits to the towns and villages where the markers are placed.
This funding includes a standard marker, mounting pole and shipping. Grantees are responsible for the installation of the marker.
