LHV Partnership Grants Program
Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area (LHV) provides funding assistance to partner organizations through its Partnership Grants Program. In 2016, LHV awarded $18,327 in grant funding to organizations to support projects and programs in the areas of place-based education, interpretive programming, historic preservation, cultural conservation, community trails, and community and economic development. This funding is an investment in Northeastern Pennsylvania that stimulates the region’s economic development, enhances tourism initiatives, strengthens the capacity of community organizations, and increases the quality of life for area residents.
