Allaire Village Receives Grant From State Historical Commission

Living history museum among 75 recipients of more than $2 million in grants

The Historic Village at Allaire will receive more than $10,000 from the state Historical Commission to fund the living history museum’s programs.

will receive $10,399 from the commission. That money will go to offset the cost of the village’s historical programs, said Allaire Executive Director Sharon Avale.

“It goes into our operating budget,’’ Avale said. “We’ll use it for costuming or for our school tours or for any of the programs. Every little bit helps.’’

Allaire was among 75 historical organizations around the state to receive grants totaling $2,332,659 — the most money ever awarded by the state Historical Commission. The commission announced the awards Tuesday.

Organizations that received general operating support funding in 2011 offered on- and off-site programs to more than 2.3 million people and supported nearly 600 full and part-time jobs statewide, according to a release from the historical commission.

The NJ Historical Commission’s grant programs are determined through an independent, third-party peer review process.  General operating support funding is made possible by a portion of the revenue produced by the state’s hotel/motel Tax legislation, the release says.

Two other organizations received funding in Monmouth County. The Historical Society of Ocean Grove was awarded $6,639 and the Monmouth County Historical Association received $84,350, according to the release.

“This financial support reaffirms our commitment to New Jersey’s historical organizations and their important programs,” Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno, who serves concurrently as Secretary of State, said in the release. “It also recognizes the impact these organizations have on economic growth and job creation.”

A trio of organizations in Ocean County also received grants:
Barnegat Bay Decoy and Baymen's Museum, Inc.  received $17,428, the Ocean County Historical Society was granted $15,000 and the Ocean County Cultural & Heritage Commission received $13,056, according to the release.
