Second Round of Relief Grants–Application is Now Open!

The second round of the California Humanities Relief Grants application is now open. Apply here.

Relief Grants between $5,000 and $20,000 will provide public humanities-focused organizations, based and operating in California, with unrestricted funds that can be used for urgent needs resulting from COVID-19 in order to support the continued implementation of public humanities programming. Applications will be accepted from August 25 to September 15 and a decision will be made by October 15.

Eligible organizations must demonstrate a track record for supporting rich and engaging public humanities work that is accessible to the people of California.  Please see the Relief Guidelines and FAQ documents for further details. If you applied during Round 1 and did NOT receive an award, you may apply again.

Watch the Relief and Recovery grants webinar recording to learn more about the intent of the program, eligibility requirements, and how to apply. Please note that the application window for Recovery Grants has closed.

Relief and Recovery Grants are made possible by funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) through the American Rescue Plan of 2021.
