Grants of $5,000 to New Jersey history-focused nonprofit organizations for support during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended to assist organizations that have been impacted by the emergency and to create stronger and more viable institutions in a post-pandemic environment.

All grant funds will be distributed for the following uses only:

  2. Purchasing essential equipment such as personal protective equipment (PPE) and plexiglass barriers to ensure the safety of staff and visitors.
