The Incubation and Action Grant program at NJCH provides funding for public humanities projects through a competitive grant process. Bloomfield Public Library received an Incubation Grant to examine the narratives that shape the LGBTQ+ experience in Bloomfield and beyond through the “Take Pride, Bloomfield!” project. Old First Historic Trust received an Action Grant to develop an oral history project that will record, preserve, and disseminate the stories of the ’59ers, the Cuban immigrants that came to Elizabeth, NJ in the aftermath of the Cuban Revolution.
