The William G. Pomeroy Foundation has begun accepting grant applications for Historic Roadside Markers to commemorate history in several New York counties (Program Regions 7-9). A grant covers the entire cost of the marker, pole and shipping.
This new grant round will cover the following counties in New York State: Fulton, Montgomery, Herkimer, Oneida, Otsego and Schoharie; Jefferson, Lewis and Oswego; and Cayuga, Cortland, Madison and Onondaga.
Letters of Intent to submit an application for a marker are due by Monday, December 17, 2018. The final application deadline is Monday, January 21, 2019. Municipalities and charitable 501(c)(3) organizations in New York State are welcome to apply for the Historic Roadside Marker Grants. Local historical organizations or municipal historians will often apply for the grant on behalf of property owners.
