Community Project Grants

Community Project Grants

Community Project grants provide support for the planning and implementation of public humanities programs and resources that meet the needs and interests of local communities. Projects may include lecture series and panel discussions, reading and discussion groups, film series, oral history projects, exhibitions, and the development of cultural resources that complement public programming.

All projects must:

  • be rooted in one or more of the disciplines of the humanities
  • enlist the participation of humanities scholars and/or experts in the project’s planning and execution, and
  • engage the public in thoughtful and informed activities that explore humanities topics, including those related to Florida and/or topics of interest to Floridians

Special consideration may be given to the following:

  • proposals from organizations with annual budgets of less than $1 million
  • projects that reach new and/or underserved audiences
  • projects that build on partnerships between two or more organizations or institutions
