Humanities Tennessee CARES Act Grants Available

As part of the $2 trillion federal CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act passed by Congress to provide economic relief during the COVID-19 pandemic, $550,000 will be re-granted by Humanities Tennessee to Tennessee cultural organizations. These funds will support organizations that provide public programs examining and reflecting upon ideas, stories, history, arts, and culture.

Our goal is to provide this emergency support funding to as many organizations as quickly as possible.
