In consideration of the time non-profits, scholars, and other public humanities practitioners have spent this past week responding the urgent public health issues raised by Covid-19, we are extending our two upcoming deadlines for the Humanities Vision Grant and the Humanitini Curator grant by one week. Proposals for these programs will now be due on Friday, March 20, 2020. Our staff, too, is currently undergoing a transition to a temporary remote-work environment in response to the ongoing public health concerns, and we understand that this type of change is rarely seamless and may have taken time from development teams and project directors working to finish proposals in time for these deadlines.

The grants team will still be available to answer questions about these grant programs but will likely be able to respond most efficiently to email correspondence.

We will continue to monitor the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and the DC Government and take appropriate actions regarding our engagement with the public.
