Snyder announces $4,000 grant for Greene County Historical Society

Funding provided by PA Historical and Museum Commission

HARRISBURG, Dec. 8 -- State Rep. Pam Snyder announced $4,000 in state funding has been awarded to the Greene County Historical Society.

The funding comes from the Cultural and Historical Support Grant program administered by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. The goal of the program is to strengthen Pennsylvania’s museum community by supporting the general operations of eligible museums and official county historical societies that are not supported by other state agency funding programs.

“The folks at the Greene County Historical Society work hard to procure a variety of exhibits and artifacts that portray Greene County’s vast history. This funding is much-deserved, and it will allow them to continue providing an educational experience for neighbors and visitors of all ages,” Snyder said.

The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission awarded almost $2 million in Cultural and Historical Support Grants to 154 eligible museums and official county historical societies across the commonwealth.
