Northampton County Historical Genealogical Society (Easton, PA 18042-3514)
Holly Beth Houser (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Digitize the Northampton County Historical and Geneaological Society's K-12 School Tours to Create Virtual Field Trips

The continued employment of five museum educators in order to enhance and expand virtual learning opportunities for K-12 students across Pennsylvania.

The Northampton County Historical and Genealogical Society respectfully requests to be considered for funding which will enable us to digitize our existing school tours for grades K - 12 and create dynamic virtual field trips. Our school tour program is popular with area school districts and is an Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Education Improvement Organization (EIO) program. The COVID-19 school closures have caused cancelled school tours. This creates a critical lack of ability to share our mission with students and the lack of income to help support our operating budget. Our staff is ready and eager to immediately begin this critical project.
