Mercer County Division of Culture and Heritage administers two grant programs—Local Arts Programs (LAP) grant program and History Grant program.

The Commission's Program Development Specialist is available to assist potential grant applicants. The Commission also hosts a variety of technical assistance workshops that are open to all Mercer County non-profit organizations, libraries, schools, local governmental entities, and individuals interested in local programming. Groups and sites are also encouraged to utilize the Commission's free newsletter and e-distribution system to help "get the word out" about their public history programs.
