Humanities for All Quick Grants
Humanities for All is a grant program that supports locally-initiated public humanities projects. This program responds to the needs and interests of Californians, encourages greater public participation in humanities programming, particularly by new and/or underserved audiences, and promotes understanding and empathy among all our state’s peoples in order to cultivate a thriving democracy.
Quick Grants (between $1,000 and $5,000) will be awarded three times a year for small-scale public humanities activities and projects that will take place within a one-year period from the award date. Projects should be grounded in the humanities, show potential to provide high quality humanities learning experiences for participants and audiences, and demonstrate capacity for successful implementation. Appropriate formats include but are not limited to community dialogues, reading- or film-and-discussion groups, oral history or nonfiction writing or story-sharing workshops, and other types of activities. Any California-based nonprofit organization or non-federal public agency is eligible to apply. Note: A cash or in-kind match of the award is NOT required.

Application for projects taking place between May 1, 2019 and April 30, 2020 (also known as the grant period) are now being accepted from January 15 – February 15, at 5 pm.
