The William G. Pomeroy Foundation has announced the newest grant round of its Historic Transportation Canals Marker Grant Program is now open. This program commemorates the historical significance of transportation canals in the United States with roadside markers.
Canal markers must be installed near an existing or former canal site and recognize a historical fact that occurred more than 50 years before the year of the grant application, which is currently 1971.
Canal marker grants are available to 501(c)(3) organizations, nonprofit academic institutions, and local, state, and federal government entities within the United States. Grant funding includes the total cost of a marker, pole, and shipping.
Those interested in applying for a marker grant should submit an online Letter of Intent by Monday, October 18th. The grant application deadline is Friday, November 19th.
