Society Receives Grant Funding

The Juniata County Historical Society board of directors is pleased to announce we have been awarded two grants from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC). This includes the General Operating Support (GOS) grant, $4,000 and a Historical and Archival Records Care (HARC) grant, $5,000. The GOS grant helps pay for operating costs. The HARC grant is designated specifically to fund the purchase of two scanners and a computer to begin work to digitize tax records, photographs and more. In addition, an application was just submitted to PHMC to apply for a Keystone Grant, to fund 50 percent of a more than $51,000 project to repair windows at the Tuscarora Academy Museum. It will be June 2023 until the Society learns if it has been approved for this last grant, of approximately $25,000 from the commonwealth. This work on the Museum could not begin until at least October.
