Hi Lucas! Adding to what Sharon said that—if assignments within the Federal/State Partnership office at NEH haven’t changed within the last year—Jean Wortman will be the one to reach out to humanities council directors about supplementary funding sometime in the spring/summer. (If it’s not Jean, someone else from Fed/State will reach out.) Happy to connect with you off listserv if you’d like to know more.

Hi, Lucas, 


In the past NEH has supported the centers from state humanities councils.  I'm sure Guy will have more info for you on that.

Hi all, 


Happy Monday. 


During our meeting last week, we discussed the National Book Festival and possible funding available for those CFB's wanting to attend. 

As a CFB under a Humanities Council, my understanding from that meeting, is that I need to apply for an IMLS Grant separately. 


This is fine; however, I am having a hard time finding the proper grant to apply for in IMLS. Is it not available yet? 

Or I am just not looking in the right places? 

Any help anyone can provide will be much appreciated. 


Thank you,
