Do you have a nice idea for bringing archaeology to the attention of the inhabitants of South Holland? If so, you can apply for a subsidy from the province from 15 May 2020 to 15 August 2020 within the subsidy scheme Public Sector Archaeology Zuid-Holland. In 2020, a total of €250,000 can be granted.

Since 2016, the province has set up the subsidy scheme Public Reach Archaeology South Holland. We are pleased to announce that the subsidy scheme will be opened for the 5th time this year. The subsidy is intended for activities in which residents of South Holland can get to know our archaeological heritage better, more interactively and in an original way.
