Grants of up to $6,500 to New Jersey nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and educational entities in eligible locations for history projects and operating support. Funding is intended for works that are historical in nature and to strengthen the capacity of history-based organizations. Proposals must be for projects/programs that take place in Atlantic County. The three categories of funding are Special Projects, General Programming Support, and General Operating Support.


  1. Written history based on primary sources
  2. Non-written historical work intended as public history 
  3. Publication Re-grants
  4. “Artful History”

For additional information about these sub-categories see: 

There are three categories of funding under the ACOCHA’s regrant program:

  • Special Project (SP): Funding is for any nonprofit group, regardless of the intent of its charter to sponsor a history-related project.
  • General Programming Support (GPS): Funding is for any nonprofit group, regardless of the intent of its charter, to offset the expense of presenting major, ongoing history programs. These programs should have their own mission and goals and contain multiple events or activities. These activities could include a series of history lectures or other multiple events throughout the year and are distinguished from Special Projects by having multiple events rather than a single activity within a calendar year.
  • General Operating Support (GOS): This funding is for groups whose charter is primarily history-related. It is designed to provide general operating support for groups that increase exposure to history in the community. This would include but is not limited to not-for-profit museums or galleries, historical societies, and groups that exist primarily to create and/or present history projects/programming. General Operating Support funding is more stringent in its requirements and more detail is required in substantiating fiscal responsibility.
