NEH Awards $32M in Grants to Humanities Projects

The National Endowment for the Arts has awarded $32.8 million in grants to 213 humanities projects across 44 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

The grants will be used to support such initiatives as archives of Appalachian history in Kentucky, an interactive timeline of African American musical performances at Carnegie Hall, and imaging technology for archaeological objects from the ancient world.

NEH Chairman Jon Parrish Peede said, “these new NEH grants will foster intellectual inquiry, promote broad engagement with history, literature, and other humanities fields, and expand access to cultural collections and resources for all Americans.”
