The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) recently announced $14.8 million in grants to support 253 humanities projects in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. An additional $47.5 million was awarded to fund 55 state humanities council partners.
NEH will also award more than $9 million to fifty-five state and jurisdictional humanities councils during February. These councils provide humanities programming and grants for worthy projects across the nation, particularly for local history and educational activities.
In total, NEH will have provided almost $18 million to the councils since the beginning of this fiscal year. This new infusion of NEH funding will help humanities councils resume regular operations in the fifty states and U.S. jurisdictions.
