The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) administered $40.3 million in new CARES Act economic stabilization grants to support essential operations at more than 300 cultural institutions across the country.

For the highly competitive NEH CARES grant category, the Humanities Endowment received more than 2,300 eligible applications from cultural organizations requesting more than $370 million in funding for projects between June and December 2020. Approximately 14 percent of the applicants were funded.

These 317 grants will allow cultural organizations to retain staff to preserve and curate humanities collections, advance humanities research, and maintain buildings and core operations. NEH CARES grants will also enable organizations to prepare buildings, exhibitions, and programs for reopening.
