ALA Chooses Libraries for NEH Humanities Grant Funding

ALA awarded $2 million in humanities funding to U.S. libraries (200 libraries, getting $10,000 each) as part of the American Rescue Plan for pandemic relief. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), these grants will help the libraries “anchor themselves as strong humanities institutions and vibrant centers of learning, conversation and connection.” Specifically, they will use the funding to create or keep jobs, support or maintain general operations, create or prop up humanities programs, and implement or continue humanities activities. The grantees are a mix of public, academic, K–12, tribal, special, and prison libraries.

For more information, read the press release.
