grantsAgency: National Endowment for the Humanities; Program: Creating Humanities Communities (CFDA Number: 45.130) (Funding Opportunity Number: 20170215-ZR); Eligibility: State, tribal and local governments, public and private colleges and universities and nonprofits; Funding: Multiple awards ranging from $30,000 to $150,000 each; Deadline: Feb. 15.

Summary: The program provides matching grants to stimulate humanities activities in areas underserved by NEH’s grantmaking divisions and offices. Grantees will use the funds to establish and undertake new humanities programs.

The goal is to make connections between organizations that will foster community cohesion on a local or regional level. Applicants may define community in a variety of ways from a physical place, such as a village or town, to a common interest or theme.

An example is a veterans’ group and a high school which developed intergenerational family programs at local historic sites..
