NEH CARES Act Cultural Organizations Grants

Deadline: May 11, 2020

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) announced new grant guidelines designed to rapidly distribute CARES Act funding to cultural nonprofits affected by the coronavirus pandemic. This new funding opportunity, NEH CARES: Cultural Organizations, will provide grants of up to $300,000 to sustain humanities organizations and preserve jobs in the cultural sector. An estimated 300-600 grants will be awarded for a total of $25,000,000 to $35,000,000.

These emergency funds will help strengthen the nation’s museums, archives, libraries, historic sites, universities, and other educational institutions, and support the communities and economies that rely on them. NEH CARES emergency relief grants provide up to $300,000 to cultural nonprofits to support a range of humanities activities across the fields of education, preservation and access, public programming, digital humanities, and scholarly research through December 31, 2020. Funding may be used for short-term activities that emphasize retaining or hiring humanities staff at cultural organizations across the country to maintain or adapt critical programs during the pandemic.

NEH CARES: Cultural Organizations application guidelines are available on the NEH website. Applicants will be informed of funding decisions by June 2020.
