In 2019, our programs, publications, and resources engaged people of all ages and backgrounds in exploring what shapes us as individuals and binds us together as Georgians.
Help Georgia Humanities share more stories that move us and make us.
Georgia Humanities Awards $634,200 in CARES Act Emergency Operating Grants
Georgia Humanities awarded $634,200 in CARES Act Emergency Operating Grants to 77 museums, libraries, historical societies, colleges and universities, and other organizations that offer humanities programming to Georgians.
The grants, ranging from $5,000 to $15,000, were awarded based on the applicant organization’s humanities programming mission, demonstrated need, and annual operating budget. Some grants will allow organizations to keep staff employed; others will use funds to protect facilities and collections; some will offer virtual programming; and others will plan and train staff to prepare for facilities to reopen observing public health recommendations for reduced crowd size and social distancing.
