The Idaho State Historical Society (ISHS) has awarded grants to 17 organizations located throughout the State of Idaho. ISHS and the Community Enhancement Grants program serve the history needs of the entire state. The program is an important way the ISHS assists groups and organizations in preserving and interpreting community history.
The CEG program provides funds for programs; collections management; educational programming; public access; interpretive enhancements; or heritage tourism.
“The Community Grants Program provides us with an opportunity to preserve and promote Idaho’s cultural heritage,” said Janet Gallimore, executive director of the Idaho State Historical Society. “We rely on partners throughout Idaho to assist us in helping to preserve Idaho’s history. These grants will provide additional funds for programs and organizations located throughout the state and will help to strengthen partner organizations.”
