Florida Humanities awards grants – known as Community Project Grants – to nonprofit organizations and public institutions across Florida whose projects strengthen vibrant communities and cultures, promote civic engagement, spark thoughtful community dialogue, and reflect on the human experience across the Sunshine State.
These grants are designed to support a vast array of bold and innovative public humanities projects that are meaningful to local communities – from oral history projects with subsequent panel discussions to digital or on-site interpretive exhibits and timely community conversations.
Due to the coronavirus crisis, these projects can be entirely virtual.
