Florida Humanities Council Invites Applications for 2017 Community Projects Grants

The Florida Humanities Council is accepting applications from Florida nonprofit organizations for the planning and implementation of public humanities projects related to Florida or of interest to Floridians.

Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded for community projects such as events, lectures or panel discussions, reading and discussion groups, film series, and/or online resources (e.g., interpretive brochures, reading lists, audio/video recordings of scholarly presentations, and classroom resources). Eligible 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, especially those related to Florida or of interest to Floridians.

Priority will be given to proposals from organizations with annual budgets of less than $1 million, projects that reach new and/or underserved audiences, and projects that build on partnerships between two or more organizations or institutions.

To be eligible, organizations must be recognized as tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and be based in and serve Floridians.
