Grants to USA and territories nonprofits and Native American entities to administer financial assistance programs for humanities organizations and professionals that have been negatively impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Required registrations may take up to one month to complete.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is accepting applications for the American Rescue Plan: Humanities Grantmaking program. The purpose of this emergency relief program is to fund grantmaking programs to assist those working in the humanities who have been adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic and require support to restore and sustain their core activities. This Notice of Funding Opportunity is directed at grantmaking organizations that support small and mid-size humanities organizations or individuals who work in the humanities.
The American Rescue Plan: Humanities Grantmaking program invites applications from organizations experienced at providing grants at a national or regional (i.e., multi-state) level to administer competitive grantmaking programs for humanities organizations or individuals who work in the humanities.
Applicants may propose a new grantmaking program or to expand or adapt an existing program. The program may be for either organizations or for individuals, but not for both. The proposed grantmaking program may include multiple tracks for applicants (e.g., for junior scholars and senior scholars; for museums and archives). NEH especially encourages applications for grantmaking programs that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the humanities.
