As the impacts of COVID-19 continue to unfold, Humanities New York is adapting to circumstances with the flexibility and transparency that the moment requires. HNY staff is happy to work with applicants as they navigate the contingencies of the virus. The Grant Review Committee will evaluate proposals with the ongoing public health crisis in mind, fully aware that cultural organizations across New York State face an unprecedented situation.
HNY understands that coordinating schedules and locking in dates is difficult at this time, and that event dates are subject to change. To that end, we ask that you share the best available details when you apply. You may address your Covid-19 contingency plans in the application. Should your proposal be awarded and you need to change the grant period, you can request a grant extension at any time.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and must be submitted at least two months before your planning process begins. They are reviewed at the end of each month.
