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.
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.
SHARP Grants: We’re excited to announce new grant opportunities supporting the recovery of our sector. These grants will support Washington State colleges, universities, and volunteer-run nonprofit organizations that provide humanities programming, and that are responding to or recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. These grants are funded by the American Rescue Plan via the National Endowment for the Humanities.
