History Fund Grant Application is Live!

We are proud to announce that the application for the first round of History Fund grants is ready!

The History Fund is a matching grants program funded by voluntary contributions via Ohioans’ state income tax returns and by gifts to the Ohio Historical Society designated to the History Fund. Tax year 2011 marked its first year of operation, making it one of four “tax check-off” funds found on Ohio’s personal income tax form. It is currently the only such fund dedicated to supporting history-related projects.

History Fund grants are competitive and require matching funds from recipients. Eligible history projects fall into one of three broad grant categories:

*Organizational Development
*Programs and Collections
*Bricks and Mortar

Representatives from history-related organizations across Ohio determine grant recipients. The Ohio Historical Society provides program support and administration. Here are links to the program guidelines and application:
