PHILADELPHIA – The National Railway Historical Society is accepting applications for its 2018 Heritage Grants Program through March 24.

Awards will be made up to $5,000 for preservation, preservation planning, publication, research, outreach, and education, according to NRHS, which has made these awards for 25 years. All grants require matching funds, which can be matched in cash, volunteer labor, or donated or purchased materials. Applicants must be a non-profit organization in the U.S.

Grants issued in 2017 totaled $20,000 and went to eight organizations to repaint rolling stock, repair a historic tower, and support an archive.
