Funding – Creating Humanities Communities Grant, National Endowment for the Humanities. Due: Feb 15, 2017
Please see the grant announcement below. NEH is looking to fund projects and programs in key “incentive areas” which include Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. These projects can and should be collaborations between an institution, such as a university or university program, and a community entity, like a tribal community or tribal program. The grants are smaller in nature due to their matching requirement, but matching funds can be raised over the course of three years. NEH staff is available for consultation throughout the application process. Please consider applying and pass along to others in these states for their consideration. Application Deadline is February 15, 2017.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) today announced Creating Humanities Communities, a new grant that supports grassroots humanities programs by encouraging partnerships and collaborations between multiple institutions or organizations in a town, county, region, or area. NEH hopes that the relationships built and strengthened through Creating Humanities Communities will lead to increases and improvements in humanities infrastructure for years to come, even beyond the initial activities funded by these grants.
