Representative Matthew Hill Announces $2,400 In State Board Programming Grants For Washington County

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — State Representative Matthew Hill (R-Jonesborough) today announced two State Board Programming Grants totaling $2,400 for Washington County.

Specifically, the Heritage Alliance of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia has received a $1,800 grant. Additionally, the Washington County — Jonesborough Public Library was awarded $600. Funding is to be used for archival digitization projects, preservation of records, archival training, and additional programs in order to enhance accessibility to documents, photographs, and other materials of historical significance.

These federal grant dollars are provided by the National Historical Publications & Records Commission — a division of the National Archives. They are administered by the Tennessee Historical Records Advisory Board, as well as the Tennessee State Library and Archives.

“I am pleased that two of our facilities here in Washington County have been awarded this federal funding through an extremely competitive application process,” said Representative Hill. “It was an honor to support the efforts of our local officials as they worked to secure these monies. They will help better preserve our important documents so current and future generations of our citizens can learn about the events that shaped our local history.”
