Humanities Tennessee awarded assistance to humanities organizations in Tennessee as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) passed by Congress in March. Grants totaling $550,000 awarded to 98 cultural organizations provided general operating support during this period of financial hardship caused by the current COVID-19 pandemic. Nonprofit grantees represent all nine Tennessee Congressional districts in urban and rural communities.

We are greatly relieved to be awarded CARES funds from Humanities Tennessee as this will help us transition to remote collaboration and allow us to move forward. Thank you for all your help and good work.” — Jamie Ross, James Agee Film Project

I wished to say thank you to Humanities Tennessee for awarding the Knoxville History Project a $5,000 CARES Act. This award brings much needed, and most sincerely appreciated, funding to our work at this time.” — Paul James, Knoxville History Project

Thank you for letting us know that we are being awarded $5,000 in CARES Act funding. Your notification was such a pleasant surprise in these uncertain times, and we can’t wait to put those funds to work re-creating our cultural museum presentations for schools. We truly appreciate your support.”  — Ellen S. Gilbert, Director, Global Education Center

Thank you SO VERY MUCH! One of my staff called me in tears to thank me for this for her.”  — Tori Mason, Grassmere Historic Farm
