Heritage Grant Program

2017 Grant Round 
Every year EMHR solicits funding requests from local and regional non-profits and government organizations for projects that advance the Heritage Region's mission. Employing a 50/50 match requirement, EMHR is able to provide funding to project partners throughout the four-county region. EMHR typically funds six to ten projects with grants that range from $1,000 to $25,000. 

The amount available for EMHR's grant program is dependent on the state budget allocated to the Heritage Areas Program administered by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR).
