Light Hearted Special Edition – the U.S. Lighthouse Society’s Emergency Relief Grants

Although our nation has made much progress in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic and we can now all start to see a guiding light at the end of the tunnel, it will still be several months before lighthouse visitation picks up to near-normal levels and for some organizations that may not happen until the 2022 season. The Board of Directors of the U.S. Lighthouse Society has therefore unanimously agreed to once again defer the normal cycle of grants and to instead offer our support and assistance with $1,000 grants to help with your operations during another tough year.

Eligibility for the grant consists simply of being a current non-profit 501(c)(3) organization responsible for preservation, care and public visitation of a historic lighthouse in the United States, including its territories, etc. The deadline for submitting a letter is February 26. More details are available here.

In this short special edition of Light Hearted, USLHS President Mike Vogel and Executive Director Jeff Gales discuss the emergency grant program.
