Burt Logan, Executive Director & CEO of the Ohio History Connection, presents the grant to David Brown and Ed Shuman of the Canal Fulton Heritage Society

State Senator Frank LaRose (R-Copley Township) today announced funding through the Ohio History Connection grant program for the Canal Fulton Heritage Society.

The Canal Fulton Heritage Society will receive a $6,000 Ohio History Fund grant for needed repairs on the roof of the William Blank House. This year, the Ohio History Connection will award $100,000 in competitive matching grants supporting history-related projects across Ohio.

"Ohio History Fund grants provide much needed assistance for local organizations, nonprofits and historical societies to preserve Ohio's rich history," said LaRose. "It's important that we continue to work together to promote the unique heritage of Ohio communities to the benefit of residents and visitors alike."

Members of the Canal Fulton Heritage Society received the award during the annual Statehood Day event at the Ohio Statehouse, commemorating Ohio’s founding and highlighting the importance of Ohio’s history.

The Ohio History Fund "tax check-off" allows Ohioans to contribute tax-deductible donations to state and local history projects on their state personal income tax form. Donations to the Ohio History Fund are used to fund local history projects throughout Ohio through a competitive grant program.

The Ohio History Fund was signed into law by Governor John R. Kasich in 2011.
