Florida Humanities awards Community Project Grants to nonprofit organizations and public institutions across Florida whose projects strengthen vibrant communities and cultures, promote civic engagement, spark thoughtful community dialogue and reflect on the human experience across the Sunshine State.

These grants are designed to support a vast array of projects. Applicants can request up to $5,000 for proposed projects, which should involve a humanities scholar(s), attract diverse audiences, bring the public together for discussion and exchange, and be free and open to the public (or not cost prohibitive).

Humanities-rich projects come in all shapes and sizes. Ultimately, these projects should be bold, innovative and potentially transformative to local communities.

Typical projects supported by Community Project Grants include, but are not limited to: interpretive exhibitions, outdoor heritage signage, community conversations, panel discussions following a performance or film screening, and oral history projects.
