National Endowment for the Humanities providing grants for cultural institutions negatively impacted by COVID-19 closures

(April 24, 2020)

“We know that, across the country, so many cultural organizations and the staff they employ are suffering severe hardship due to the pandemic,” said National Endowment for the Humanities Chairman Jon Parrish Peede.  "NEH is working quickly to distribute emergency funds to strengthen the nation’s museums, archives, libraries, historic sites, universities, and other educational institutions, and to support the communities and economies that rely on them."

Grant applications open April 20, 2020 and are due by May 11, 2020. 

The NEH grants are among recently announced federal government funding initiatives intended to help those impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. On April 17, the USDA announced a $19 billion Coronavirus Food Assistance Program aimed at supporting struggling food producers across the country.
