Alabama Humanities Foundation has $500,000 in relief grants

(April 29, 2020)

The Alabama Humanities Foundation is hoping to share more than $500,000 with Alabama nonprofit organizations promoting public humanities programs.

On April 10, AHF received the funding through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act passed earlier this year ago by Congress and then released for Alabama by the National Endowment for the Humanities, said AHF Executive Director Lynn Clark.

Alabama nonprofits that have a demonstrated a commitment to humanities programming are being asked for information to help establish parameters for allocating the CARES grants to aid communities.

“To help us craft the new grants to meet your needs, we are asking organizations to fill out our AHF CARES Needs Survey,” Clark said in an email. “Once we compile the information, we will post guidelines for the grant process. Please share this survey with your community.”
