Indiana organizations providing public programming rooted in the humanities, including history, literature, languages and philosophy, can now apply for COVID-19 relief grants through Indiana Humanities.
Two types of grants: operating support grants and programming and capacity-building grants, are available. Operating support grants range from $5,000 to $20,000 depending on the size of the organization, and applications are due July 31. Programming and capacity-building grants are due August 31, and organizations can request up to $10,000.
Funding for the grants will be administered by Indiana Humanities and was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities with funds from the American Rescue Plan.
“Humanities organizations are part of the critical infrastructure of this country and are providing essential services and programs to support communities recovering from the pandemic,” Kiera Amstutz, president and CEO of Indiana Humanities, said. “We are grateful to the U.S. Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities for recognizing and providing this much-needed support, which will help essential community anchors and institutions strengthen their operations and enhance their programming. Our goal is to get these funds out across the state quickly and equitably, just as intended.”
