NEH CARES: Cultural Organizations, Application Available

Apr 22, 2020 at 08:00 am by katecaccavaio

Grant Opportunity: Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act on March 27, and supplemental funding was provided for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). This funding will provide emergency relief to institutions and organizations working in the humanities that have been affected 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. “Across the country, so many cultural organizations and the staff they employ are suffering severe hardship due to the pandemic,” said NEH Chairman Jon Parrish Peede. NEH invites applications from eligible organizations seeking support for at-risk humanities positions and projects that have been impacted by the coronavirus.

Eligibility:  NEH will award grants to museums, libraries and archives, historic sites, independent research institutions, professional organizations, colleges and universities, and other cultural organizations.

Grant Amount:  Up to $300,000

Grant Period: June 15, 2020 – December 31, 2020

Important Dates: 

  • Application Available: April 20, 2020
