The National Coal Heritage Area Authority is seeking proposals for funding for projects within the National Coal Heritage Area.

The money is aimed at supporting community efforts to preserve, interpret and promote coal heritage resources.

The Register-Herald reports that the National Coal Heritage Area includes the counties of Mercer, McDowell, Wyoming, Summers, Raleigh, Fayette, Boone, Mingo, Logan, Wayne, Cabell, Lincoln and the Paint Creek and Cabin Creek watersheds in Kanawha County.

Previous projects have included preservation of archival materials and historic structures, and creation of museum exhibits, brochures and marketing materials.

About $150,000 is available for this round of funding and projects must have matching funds available. Applications must be received by Feb. 13.
