HARRISBURG, DAUPHIN COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission (PHMC) has awarded almost $2 million in grants.
   Those grants will benefit 142 eligible museums and official county historical societies from 55 Pennsylvania counties.

“Pennsylvania’s wonderful museums and historical societies help preserve and share the state’s rich history and culture through the stories they tell,” said Governor Tom Wolf in a prepared release. 
    “These funds, awarded to museums and historical societies across the commonwealth will help ensure these facilities are able to continue serving as educational resources for all Pennsylvanians.”
 
The goal of this 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.
