The William G. Pomeroy Foundation will begin accepting grant applications Monday for Historic Roadside Markers to commemorate history in several counties, including Otsego and Schoharie. A grant will cover the cost of the marker, pole and shipping.
Letters of intent to submit an application for a marker are due by Dec. 17. The final application deadline is Jan. 21. Municipalities and charitable organizations may apply.
