Due to the federal government shutdown, Humanities New York is operating on a contingency budget. Given the uncertainty presented, current grantees and applicants should be advised that funding for projects awarded will be delayed. We understand that this may be a barrier to some applicants and will provide updates via our newsletter.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and must be submitted at least two months before your planning process begins or your event takes place.
