Humanities New York (HNY)
Grants ranging from $1,500 to $5,000 to New York nonprofit organizations for the implementation of public humanities projects. Projects should encourage audiences to examine their values, explore new ideas, and interact with others in the State. Formats can include roundtables, workshops, panel discussions, humanities-infused performances, exhibits, podcasts, and interactive digital platforms.
The aim of this program:
- Connect audiences more deeply to the communities where they live and work.
- Solidify community partnerships and diversify audiences.
- Creatively employ the tools of the humanities to respond to issues and ideas capturing the imagination and passion of New Yorkers today.
Humanities New York (HNY) supports projects that activate, frame, or deepen our understanding of what it means to be human. HNY encourages and supports innovative approaches in the design and delivery of public-facing programming. Competitive projects are engaging to a variety of New Yorkers and do not require specialized knowledge to participate in or enjoy. HNY welcomes projects that serve targeted communities—such as families, youth, seniors, veterans, prison populations, and individuals with special needs.
HNY prioritizes support to projects that reach audiences with fewer opportunities to attend educational and cultural programming. Because we are a statewide organization, within each grant round we strive to make awards in as many regions of the state as possible. Through 2020, requests related to the U.S. Women’s Suffrage Centennial are welcome. Other priorities include supporting small organizations (with operating budgets of less than $250,000) and rural organizations.
