> County Administration NY Council for the Humanities

The goals of the New York Council for the Humanities grants are to encourage informed public discourse in communities across New York State, to help New Yorkers deepen their understanding of the world around them, and to actively engage New Yorkers with issues and ideas. All projects supported by the Council must be intended for and open to a general public audience. Priority is given to projects serving people for whom such opportunities are rare and projects where dialogue is integral to actively engaging the program(s) target audience(s). Grant page also has a glossary of terms and link to a FAQ about Council grants.

Several distinct types of grants are made through the Council:

  • Reading and Discussion grants of upto $1,500
  • Project grants of upto $3,000
  • Planning grants of upto $1,500
