Communities around Washington have important stories to tell and issues to discuss. Humanities Washington’s grants program provides the financial resources for people to come together to talk, discuss, debate, feel, think, and tell stories through the lens of the humanities. We support existing efforts as well as new opportunities for grassroots projects conceived and implemented locally.
Humanities Washington’s grants program is made possible with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Humanities Washington is not currently offering grants. We are in the process of revising our grants program and will have information about a new grant available in March 2021. Humanities Washington typically offers two types:
Opportunity grants: Available to small or rural organizations for public humanities presentations. Opportunity grants do not require a funding match, and organizations may request up to $1,000. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year, and until all funds are distributed. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Opportunity grants were suspended in 2020 in order to divert funds to our CARES Act Humanities Relief grants.
Washington Stories Fund grants: Awarded once per year to projects that highlight and share the little-known stories of a person or group whose contributions add to the cultural richness and health of Washington State. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Washington Stories Fund grants were suspended in 2020 in order to divert funds to our CARES Act Humanities Relief grants.
