Humanities for All Grants
Humanities for All grants supports locally-initiated public humanities projects responding to the needs and interests of Californians that will encourage participation in public humanities, 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.

  • Quick Grants will provide between $1,000 and $5,000 to support small-scale public humanities activities and projects that will take place within a one-year period from the award date. No match is required.
  • Project Grants will provide between $10,000 and $20,000 to larger public humanities projects of up to two-year duration. Awards must be matched with an equivalent amount of cash or in-kind resources over the life of the project.

The applications for both the Quick Grants and the Project Grants will go live tomorrow. To learn more, please visit our webpage here.

The California Documentary Project (CDP)
The California Documentary Project (CDP) grants supports the research and development and production stages of film, audio, and digital media projects that seek to document California in all its complexity. Projects should use the humanities to provide context, depth and perspective and reach and engage broad audiences through multiple means, including but not limited to radio and television broadcasts, podcasts, online distribution and interactive media, community screenings and discussions, in classrooms and libraries, at cultural centers, film festivals, and beyond. Funding is available in two categories:

  • Research and Development Grants up to $10,000
  • Production Grants up to $50,000
