NHA Lauds Latest Round of NEH Grants

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Humanities Alliance released the following statement today from its Executive Director Stephen Kidd on the January announcement of $33.8 million in grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support 260 humanities projects nationwide:

“As part of the American Tapestry: Weaving Together Past, Present, and Future initiative, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) will support 28 small and mid-sized cultural organizations in underserved communities in strengthening their public humanities programming through its newest grant line, Public Impact Projects at Smaller Organizations. Preservation and Access Education and Training Grants will help further conservation training across the country to ensure effective stewardship of humanities collections. More than 100 NEH Fellowships and Awards for Faculty will support humanities research at higher education institutions throughout the U.S. And 30 Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge grants will encourage local investment as organizations work to sustain and bolster humanities infrastructure.”

“We are immensely proud of the NEH’s impact across the U.S. and will continue advocating for increased federal support for future grants in 2024 and beyond.”
