Attention, grantseekers! The application window for the second round of our new grants program, Humanities for All Quick Grants, is now open! Guidelines, application instructions, and FAQs for the application deadline of March 1, 2017 are now available at the program webpage.
Quick Grants (between $1,000 and $5,000) will be awarded three times a year for smaller-scale public humanities activities and projects sponsored by California-based nonprofit organizations and public agencies that will take place within a one-year period (May 1, 2017-April 30, 2018). No match is required.
Developed in response to feedback received from humanities programmers and partners, and reflecting new organizational goals of increasing responsiveness and accessibility, Humanities for All grants will support locally-initiated public humanities projects that address the needs and interests of Californians, encourage greater public participation in humanities programming, particularly by new and/or underserved audiences, and promote understanding and empathy among all our state’s peoples in order to cultivate a thriving democracy. Grants will support for many of the same types of projects previously funded through our long-running Community Stories program, which had its last deadline in February 2016, as well as other types of projects, including experimental and innovative programming.
In addition to the Quick Grants, Project Grant Awards between $10,000 and $20,000 will be made twice a year for larger public humanities projects of up to two years duration. The first round of Project Grant applications are due February 1st. Visit the program webpage for more information.
