    The goal of the Humanities Initiative Grant program is to help bring the humanities to public audiences. These grants provide nonprofit organizations with funds to sponsor humanities-related public programs such as workshops, lectures, exhibits, reading and discussion programs, and production of humanities resources. Projects must contain a strong focus on the humanities, include humanities scholars in project planning and implementation and be intended for a public or school audience.

    Funding for these grants is provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, a federal agency.
