The Incubation and Action Grant program at NJCH provides funding for public humanities projects through a competitive grant process. The Unitarian Society received an Incubation Grant to gather community feedback on the “Lost Souls Public Memorial Project,” a memorial to 100 people from New Jersey who were illegally sent into slavery in the South in 1818. Hamilton Partnership for Paterson received an Action Grant to increase awareness, through community involvement, of Paterson’s historical role in global trade and contemporary cultural influence.
