Lackawanna Heritage Valley has Grants Available for Innovative Community Enrichment Ideas

In keeping with its mission to cultivate community collaborations, Lackawanna Heritage Valley announces a partnership grant program designed to empower non-profit and civic organizations, municipal or governmental agencies, and educational institutions.
With grants up to $5,000, LHV is looking to advance initiatives that enhance the quality of life and contribute to the cultural, artistic, and historic fabric of the region. The organization fosters connections between communities and their shared heritage while highlighting the economic potential of cultural and historic assets.
“Community participation is at the heart of what we do,” said Owen Worobzyt, LHV Director of Operations. “We are thrilled to offer this opportunity for eligible groups to bring their innovative ideas to life. Our hope is these grants will not only enrich communities, but also inspire appreciation for our shared history and heritage.”
The selection process involves a thorough evaluation based on the potential to create positive change. The program requires a dollar-for-dollar funding match, and applicants must submit their proposals by noon, Sept. 15th.
Past recipients include the Anthracite Heritage Museum; the Scranton Jazz Festival; the Scranton Shakespeare Festival; First Friday Scranton; the Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science and Art; the Lackawanna Historical Society; and the Waverly Community House.
