Thinking of applying for a grant in 2019? Grant-writing season is just around the corner. Bring your lunch and stop by the Morris County Library to learn more about applying for grants. This summer the Morris County Heritage Commission will offer two workshops on writing grant applications as part of its 2018 lunch-and-learn workshop series.  Both sessions will be presented by Peg Shultz, Archivist/Acting Director of the Morris County Heritage Commission.

Helpful Hints and Tips for Writing a Successful Grant Application will be held on Tuesday, July 31, from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Whether you’re applying for funding at the local, state, federal, or foundation level, the workshop will provide participants with basic grant writing tips and offer suggestions on completing a successful grant application.

Changes have been made to the re-grant program.  Nonprofit organizations that are familiar with the program, and those who have not applied in the past are invited to attend What’s New? Changes to Morris County’s Re-grant Program on Tuesday, August 7, from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Ms. Shultz will discuss recent changes to the 2019 re-grant program guidelines.

Funds for the Re-grant Program are made available through a County History Partnership Program grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission.  The program supports a variety of efforts to increase appreciation, knowledge, and preservation of Morris County’s history. Re-grant awards for projects and General Operating Support are available to nonprofit history organizations. Nonprofit organizations based in Morris County whose activities are not history-based but which have archival collections or are planning history-based programming are also encouraged to apply for history project funds.

There is no charge for the workshops, but pre-registration is appreciated. Directions to the Morris County Library can be found online at
