Project Description

To share the important and diverse stories of women in New Jersey history in a safe and accessible format this year, NJ Women Vote: The 19th Amendment at 100 (NJ Women Vote) will fund the production of virtual tours at five sites along the New Jersey Women’s Heritage Trail. Eligibility, application, and project timeline information is listed below.

All applications will be reviewed and evaluated by a panel of reviewers. Accepted applicants will work with the NJ Women Vote project team and video production company to create a 2-4 minute virtual tour of their site. No matching funds are required. Final edited videos will be shared with organizations for public use on their website and social media and posted to the NJ Women Vote website.

Applicants and sites must be available for filming between July 20, 2020 and August 10, 2020, but sites do not need to be open to the public at this time. The production team will prioritize the health and safety of all those involved by observing appropriate social distancing guidelines.
