The Heritage Commission applies each year for grants from the New Jersey Historical Commission to fund historical activities in Morris County. Grants awarded to the Heritage Commission are re-granted to non-profits or municipal organizations throughout the county to help cover general operating costs for history organizations or to support history-related projects and programs.

Funding may be used for exhibits, collections management, archival supplies, conservation, long range plans, preparation of national register nominations, and similar activities that make history accessible to the public. Heritage Commission grants are not for “bricks and mortar” historic preservation projects. Historic Preservation grants are available from the Morris County Historic Preservation Trust Fund at
