The National Endowment for the Humanities will award $28.6 million to 233 humanities projects across the US, including cultural infrastructure initiatives, scholarly research, exhibitions, documentaries, and historic preservation endeavors. Newly awarded grants will “provide for the restoration of the steeple and tower of Philadelphia’s Christ Church, a national historic landmark, whose congregation once included George Washington, Betsy Ross, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams. NEH Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge Grants will also help the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians construct a tribal museum and cultural center in southwest Oregon focusing on the history and culture of the region’s Native American people and support renovations to the John Steinbeck Library in Salinas, California, to allow the library to exhibit and hold community educational events around its special collection of Steinbeck works.”
