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.
