Indiana Humanities will administer funding totaling over $500,000, provided from the National Endowment for the Humanities through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
Nonprofit organizations that provide public humanities programming can apply for funding relief with grants ranging from $5,000 to $15,000, depending on the organization’s budget. The funds can be used only for general operating support.
“Humanities organizations are vital cultural organizations at the heart of our communities,” said Keira Amstutz, president and CEO of Indiana Humanities. “We are grateful to the U.S. Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities for providing us with this opportunity to support these essential community anchors or institutions during this time of need. Our goal is to get these funds out across the state quickly and equitably, just as intended.”
