Heritage Areas Grant Program
The Endless Mountains Heritage Region, Inc., (EMHR), in cooperation with the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), has administered an annual grant program through the Pennsylvania Heritage Areas Program since 1998. While we are uncertain of availability of grant funds through DCNR and the state Heritage Areas Program this year, we solicited project initiatives that support our Priority Areas and that can be developed into a funded heritage project if and when grant program funding is restored. Interested applicants should download, complete and submit the Notice of Intent form by mid-January each year. EMHR staff is available to discuss project plans, identify common goals and potential funding sources, and form partnerships.
