The William G. Pomeroy Foundation is now accepting online applications for its Legends & Lore® Marker Grant Program, which helps communities commemorate their local folklore and legends, and promote cultural tourism with roadside markers.

“Legends & Lore markers create opportunities for meaningful conversations and community awareness surrounding their folklore and legends,” said Deryn Pomeroy, Trustee and Director of Strategic Initiatives at the Pomeroy Foundation. “The Pomeroy Foundation encourages communities to consider how the cultural traditions in their town or city might gain further recognition through the public spotlight generated by a Legends & Lore roadside marker.”

The Legends & Lore grant application deadline is Monday, Oct. 17. Grant funding includes the full cost of a marker, pole, and shipping. To review program guidelines and details about how to apply online, visit the Foundation’s website: https://www.wgpfoundation.org/history/legends-lore/
