Mike Seals - April 21, 2021 10:58 pm



Oklahoma Humanities (OH) announces that $50,000 in immediate emergency grant funding is available for cultural organizations statewide that sustained damages in the days following the February 17, 2021, severe winter storm.

This emergency funding will support at-risk humanities collections; collections digitization, consultations, restoration, or replacement; exhibit restoration or replacement; archival restoration; or other costs directly associated with humanities programming. Any grant request for facility alterations or renovations that do not directly impact humanities-based programming are not allowable.

OH is accepting applications from nonprofits for grant awards of up to $3,000. The online application is available through July 1, 2021, at the OH website: okhumanities.org/grants.

This emergency federal funding is made available through a special Chairman’s Grant from The National Endowment for the Humanities, Office of Federal/State Partnership.

“Oklahoma Humanities understands the economic and educational impact cultural organizations have on local communities” said OH Executive Director Caroline Lowery. “This emergency funding will help repair widespread damages caused by the unprecedented winter weather event. We are grateful to provide this vital support to ensure our local agencies remain resilient, robust, and resourced.”
