NEH Funds Nearly 200 Humanities Projects Across the U.S.

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is providing $30.9 million in grants to support 188 humanities projects in 45 states and Washington, D.C. They include a grant for the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in New Mexico, which will build a new campus with a new exhibition building, and the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Wyoming, to protect an extensive collection of artifacts related to the American West. And an additional $48 million will go to “55 state, territorial, and jurisdictional humanities councils, which serve local communities through a range of state-focused humanities discussion and educational outreach programs.”

“These new NEH grants will expand access to the country’s wealth of historical, literary, and artistic resources by helping archivists and curators care for important heritage collections, and using new media to inspire examination of significant texts and ideas,” says Jon Parrish Peede, NEH’s chairman.

For more information about what the grants will help accomplish, read the press release.
