IHC Announces Latest Round of CARES Act Grant Recipients

The Idaho Humanities Council (IHC) is pleased to announce that it has awarded an additional $64,406 in CARES Act funding to 17 Idaho organizations. To date, IHC has awarded a total of $186,861 to 42 unique Idaho organizations in 22 communities. This funding was received from the National Endowment for the Humanities through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).  These grants will be used to support operational costs that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are fortunate to have this opportunity to assist Idaho’s humanities-based organizations affected by the pandemic,” said David Pettyjohn, IHC Executive Director.  “This funding will allow these critical organizations to maintain resources and provide programming that benefits all Idahoans.”

CARES Act funding is still available for eligible organizations and IHC is now accepting applications from organizations without any paid staff. To learn more about CARES Act grants, please visit www.idahohumanities.org/cares-act-grants.
