Our next deadline for the Humanities for All Project Grants program is fast approaching. This program provides grants between $10,000 and $20,000 for public-facing projects that promote understanding and mutual respect, and provide Californians of all backgrounds with opportunities to engage with important issues through the lens of the humanities.
Since 2017, we have awarded over $1.3 million to museums, libraries, community-based organizations, municipalities, K-12 and higher education institutions for interpretive exhibits, community dialogue and discussion series, workshops and participatory activities, presentations and lectures, conversations and forums, and interactive and experiential humanities-based programs of many kinds. During these challenging times, we encourage consideration of virtual as well as traditional face-to-face programming platforms and methods to reach and engage your community in and with the humanities.
Application eligibility is limited to California-based nonprofit organizations and non-federal public agencies and grant funds must be matched 1:1 over the life of the project with local resources (cash or in-kind). Awards for this round will be announced in December 2020, with a grant period of January 2021 – December 2022. Our next anticipated application deadline will be February 2021.
