HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) today awarded a $5,000 grant to the Wyalusing Valley Museum Association, Inc., according to Senator Gene Yaw (R-23).
The Wyalusing Valley Museum Association’s mission is to educate, preserve and interpret the rich history and culture of the Wyalusing Valley and contiguous area of the southeastern corner of Bradford County.
Statewide, PHMC awarded 33 grants selected from 82 eligible applications. Grant amounts ranged from $5,000 to $25,000 for project grants and $5,000 to $80,000 for construction projects. All grants require a 50/50 cash match and were awarded through a competitive selection process.
Keystone Historic Preservation Grants provide funding to support projects that identify, preserve, promote and protect historic and archaeological resources in Pennsylvania for both the benefit of the public and the revitalization of communities. Funding also supports municipal planning initiatives that focus on historic resources or may be used to meet building or community specific planning goals. The program also supports construction activities at resources listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission is the official history agency of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
