HARRISBURG – Rep. Tom Mehaffie (R-Dauphin) announced the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) has awarded $4,000 to the Hershey History Center, $17,668 to the AACA Museum Inc. and $23,904 to the Hershey Story Museum. This funding has been awarded through PHMC’s Cultural and Historical Grant Program. The program provides general operating support to Pennsylvania museums and historical societies not directly supported by other state programs.

“It’s incredibly important to remember where we came from,” Mehaffie said. “This money will help historians across the Commonwealth do just that. It’s wonderful to see three local organizations receive support for the excellent work they do.”

Grants were awarded using a formula based on a percentage of each organization’s annual operating budget. Grants were awarded to 158 organizations across 58 of the Commonwealth’s 67 counties.
