National Endowment for the Humanities: Seeking Applications for Humanities Access Grants

Deadline: 3 May 2017

The National Endowment for the Humanities is seeking applications for its Humanities Access Grants to help support capacity building for humanities programs that benefit one or more of the following groups: children, family, and young adults (defined to include those between ages 18 and 30).

Humanities Access grants provide funding for existing programs at institutions such as public libraries, local and regional museums, historical societies, community colleges, four-year colleges and universities, archival repositories, and other cultural organizations.

Programs supported by Humanities Access grants have included, for example

  • a young readers’ initiative sponsored by a state humanities council;
  • a “family conversations” program at a rural historical society connecting the area’s cultural and natural resources; and
  • internships for students at a liberal arts college to work in local cultural organizations during the summer.

Humanities Access Grants offer two years of match-based funding. All funds must be expended by the end of the grant period. Humanities Access grant funds should not be used to replace existing program funds. Instead, the grant should expand or enhance an existing exemplary humanities program.

Funding Information

NEH will offer successful applicants a one-to-one matching grant of either $50,000 or $100,000 divided evenly over the first two years of the three-year grant.

Eligibility Criteria

  • U.S. nonprofit organizations with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status are eligible, as are state and local governmental agencies and federally recognized Indian tribal governments.
  • The program that applicants would like to support through this grant must be a humanities program.
  • Institutions that are part of a larger institution (for example, a university museum) should consult with NEH staff on questions of separate eligibility.
  • Individuals are not eligible to apply.
