A Message to California Humanities Grantees on COVID-19

UPDATE: We are extending the 2020 CDP NextGen deadline to Wednesday, March 18 at 5 pm, due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus and its impact on applicants. 

Dear Grantees,

California Humanities believes that public health and safety are top priorities. At this time, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), has been detected in more than 108 countries. We are taking the following steps regarding our grant programs:

  • We are committed to flexibility for grantees who need to reschedule events due to public health concerns. Grantees should make event decisions that meet the needs of their audiences, staff, and board. In the event of postponement or cancellation, we request that project directors notify us as quickly as possible so that we may update our records and calendar.
  • We understand that program cancellations may delay interim and final reports. Therefore, we will consider extending grant periods by up to six months. Please contact your program officer to discuss this option.
  • We will continue to accept applications for the upcoming California Documentary Project NextGen deadline (new deadline: March 18, 2020, 5 pm).

Above all, we invite you to stay in touch as you work to keep your communities safe. If you have any questions, our staff is here to help.

 

With best wishes,

Julie Fry
President & CEO
California Humanities
