Lackawanna Heritage Valley is pleased to announce the start of a new cycle of grant funding through its Partnership Grant Program. The program is open to members of non-profit organizations, municipal and governmental agencies, and educational institutions with proposals for projects designed to enhance the quality of life in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The deadline to apply for a Lackawanna Heritage Valley Partnership Grant is Wednesday, March 1, at noon.
This program is limited to small grants, since available funding to LHV for these programs has been cut dramatically in the past few years. Since inception, LHV has provided $3,375,903 in grant funding to organizations for projects and programs in place-based education, interpretive programming, historic preservation, cultural conservation, community trails, and community and economic development. This investment in Northeastern Pennsylvania stimulates the region’s economy, enhances tourism initiatives, strengthens community organizations, and increases the quality of life for area residents.
Eligible applicants include:
Through this program, LHV has supported a wide variety of projects in the region, such as:
LHV provides financial assistance to non-profit and civic organizations, heritage partners, educational institutions, and municipalities located or operated within the Lackawanna Heritage Valley, or whose projects will benefit LHV’s service area in Lackawanna County and portions of Susquehanna, Wayne, and Luzerne Counties.
LHV works with community partners on projects that conserve, preserve, and educate the public about Northeastern Pennsylvania’s historic, cultural, economic, and natural resources.
