HHS Region 4:
Since 1971, the Florida Humanities Council has awarded more than $8 million statewide in support of the development and presentation of humanities-rich cultural resources and public programs. These programs and resources help preserve Florida’s rich history and heritage, promote civic engagement and community dialogue, and provide opportunities for reflecting on the future of the growing state.
With funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, FHC grants primarily respond to the needs of local communities, but they often address topics of statewide interest. FHC is particularly interested in projects that are collaborative, attract diverse audiences, encourage active participation from the public, and explore humanities topics and disciplines in interesting and engaging ways.
To be eligible, organizations must be recognized as tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, be based in Florida, and serve Floridians.
Applications for the upcoming cycle are due July 22, 2020.
