Funding Opportunities

From the Panhandle to the Keys, Florida Humanities has been raising up the diverse stories of local communities – from the largest urban cities to the smallest rural towns – through funding transformative projects that strengthen, promote and preserve the vibrant history, literature, culture and personal stories of the Sunshine State.

As the statewide affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Florida Humanities is committed to supporting local communities by offering various funding opportunities tailored to help nonprofit organizations tell their stories that offer Floridians a better understanding of themselves, their communities and their state. Please see below the current opportunities available at Florida Humanities.
