Historical Marker Grant Deadline

April 1, 2013


The History Fund is the newest grant program administered by the Ohio Historical Society’s Local History Office, (LHO) but it is not the only one. The LHO also administers OHS’s grant program to erect Ohio Historical Markers. Applications are due April 1. The grants are for up to $750, approximately a quarter to a third of a marker’s cost of $2,300 to $2,580 (the local sponsor of the marker is responsible for the remainder). The grants are also competitive. OHS makes five grants per deadline, and it usually receives 10-15 applications.

Applying for a grant is easy – just check the box at the top of the maker application that reads “Check the box if applying for funding through Ohio Historical Markers Grants Program.” That is it. Marker Applications are available online at www.remarkableohio.org. You will also find a complete and up-to-date list of all Ohio Historical Markers, which currently number 1,418.

Please note that you do not have to apply for a grant to erect a marker. Many local sponsors who are not grant recipients, or who do not apply for a grant, elect to pay the cost of the markers themselves. Correspondingly, marker applications are accepted year ‘round.
