Arizona Humanities is honored to provide rapid-response funding to non-profit humanities and cultural organizations that are facing financial hardship resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. These grants are funded by the Congressional CARES Act through the National Endowment for the Humanities.
In addition to funds distributed to Arizona Humanities and other state humanities councils, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has received supplemental funding to provide emergency relief to institutions and organizations working in the humanities that have been affected by the coronavirus.
The NEH is offering awards of up to $300,000 to eligible organizations seeking support for at-risk humanities positions and projects that have been impacted by the coronavirus. In keeping with Congress’s intent in enacting the CARES Act, proposed short-term projects should emphasize retaining or hiring humanities staff.
Applications for this funding opportunity are due May 11, 2020. For more information visit the NEH CARES website: https://www.neh.gov/program/neh-cares-cultural-organizations
*Please note the Arizona Humanities CARES Act Emergency Relief Grant and the NEH CARES Grant are separate grant opportunities, and require separate applications.
