This year’s deadline for Ohio History Fund grant applications is 11:59 pm, September 4, 2019. If you have an archaeology project that needs funds you are strongly encouraged to consider applying. The Ohio History Fund is a competitive matching grant program for archaeology and history projects. From 2013 - 2019, the Ohio History Fund made 73 grants in 37 counties totaling more than $690,000, including archaeological research, exhibit development, and site preservation. Proving there is a strong need for the program, it has received 347 grant proposals totaling $4.2 million in requests. The Ohio income tax check-off for the Ohio History Fund is main source of support for the grant program. Grants recipients are announced at the annual Statehood Day event (Ohio Statehood Day is officially March 1).
