The New Jersey Historical Commission has approved nearly $4.9 million in grants for fiscal year 2022 to more than 100 historical organizations, museums, historic sites, archives, libraries, individuals and county regrant agencies across the state.
The funds will support state-based historical research, exhibits, programs and archival work and provide all 21 counties with funding for local history groups statewide, as well as go toward planning initiatives to promote best practices in diversity, equity and inclusion.
“In such an unprecedented time for New Jersey’s history stakeholders, we are incredibly grateful that we have the increased funding and resources necessary to help organizations in so many essential ways,” said Sara Cureton, executive director of the New Jersey Historical Commission. “Whether it is increased support for traditional programs or working to help organizations achieve more inclusive interpretations to expand and diversify audiences, we are excited to see the benefits of these efforts in the upcoming year and beyond.”
