HNY is directly affected by the government shutdown as the state partner for the National Endowment for the Humanities. As a result of the federal funding gap, the NEH is closed and its expected funding to HNY is delayed.
HNY will take several measures immediately, including postponing the February grant deadline from 2/1 to 3/1, and suspending the June 1 grant round entirely until further notice. The next Grant Round Deadline after March will be October 1 for projects starting the following January. Grants awarded through the end of March will be awarded on a contingent basis. While HNY expects to be able to honor its funding commitments, these will be delayed for a period of some months.
If a delayed payment will present a hardship to your organization or prevent the project's completion, please contact Joe Murphy, Interim Grants Associate, at [email protected]
