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 offers two types of grants:
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.
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. In 2019, we will award four grants of $5,000 to groups or organizations through a competitive process, and projects require a funding match. LOIs are now being accepted until June 10.
