Humanities New York will make every effort to work with grantees who have had to postpone HNY-funded programs. We have the flexibility to approve significant project extensions. We understand, too, that in some cases a canceled program cannot be rescheduled—we will work directly with grantees in such cases.
Please notify us of any project delays or cancellations by emailing [email protected]. We will adjust the grant period end date and final report due dates accordingly. These changes will be documented as an “Amendment Report” that you can view in the Fluxx grant portal.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. We are here to help.
