Wheeling Heritage’s partnership grant program provides funding to projects that align with our mission of being a catalyst for the revitalization of Wheeling through historic preservation, community development and the arts.
The partnership grant program is designed to be accessible, inclusive and welcoming to support innovative, community-driven activities that enhance Wheeling. To apply for a grant, the project must focus on the Wheeling Heritage Area (the city limits of Wheeling). Preference will be given to projects that interpret one of Wheeling’s Themes of History and Development.
Proposals are reviewed quarterly by an ad-hoc committee that evaluates applications to ensure they are in compliance with grant guidelines and determines whether or not the project will receive funding through the partnership grant program.
Wheeling Heritage grants will fund up to 75% of direct project costs. The applicant can provide its matching share either in dollars or in-kind services. Grants are accepted quarterly.
