July 15: Illinois Humanities Council Community Grant Program application is due

The Illinois Humanities Council gives Community Grant support to Illinois nonprofit organizations to develop public humanities programs for Illinois audiences and to provide technical assistance or general support to help accomplish their core humanities missions.

The IHC’s community grants program accepts proposals from nonprofit organizations that have a story to tell about Illinois or who have a way to use the humanities to enrich community life. We also accept proposals from organizations looking for technical assistance or general operating support.

Because we believe the humanities should belong to everyone, we especially encourage applications from organizations that bring humanities projects to new or historically neglected audiences or communities.

The IHC conducts grant and humanities resources workshops several times a year throughout the state. In the fall and spring workshops are held at our offices in Chicago, central, eastern, western and southern Illinois communities. To speak with an IHC Program Officer about applying for IHC funds or attending a grant workshop, please call 312.422.5580 or email
