Mercer County's Cultural and Heritage Commission offers grants through its annual History Regrant program, a partnership between the New Jersey Historical Commission and the Commission. General Operating (GOS) and Special Projects (SP) grants are available to county-based organizations to support historical organizations and history programming. GOS grants are available only to non-profit historical sites and groups. SP grants are available to nonprofit community organizations, local government entities, schools, higher education institutions and libraries offering programming and events related to local, county or New Jersey state history. See the History Regrant guidelines for more information on eligibility requirements.
