BHS Receives $5,000 grant award from Ohio Humanities Council

 

The national Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act passed by Congress on March 27 was established to provide assistance to state, local, and tribal governments to help combat the far-reaching impacts of COVID-19. Funds appropriated included $75 million in emergency funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities, of which 40 percent was distributed to the 56 state and territorial humanities councils to support local economic relief efforts.

 

BHS was a recipient of this funding in the amount of $5,000 through the Ohio Humanities Council grant application program, and was one of 91 organizations in Ohio to receive an award. Funding will be used to help with History Center expenses, upkeep of the historical structures at Wartinger Historical Park, and the creation of a video version of the Living History Program.

BHS Receives $500 from the Ohio History Fund

 

BHS is the recipient of a $500 gift grant from the Ohio History Fund COVID-19 Emergency Grant from the Ohio History Connection. This temporary grant program helps history organizations address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic (www.ohiohistory.org/covidgrant).

The BHS request was one of 38 organizations funded out of 127 applications, and received the maximum award amount of $500 allowed for an organization of our size. These funds will be used together with the Ohio Humanities grant to create a video version of the Living History program.

The Ohio History Fund grants were made possible thanks to the support of the Ohio History Connection Foundation, the Conestoga volunteer organization dedicated to enhancing community support for the OHC, and private donors.
