BATON ROUGE, La. - The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) invites applications from eligible organizations seeking support for at-risk humanities positions and projects that have been impacted by the coronavirus.

Through this funding opportunity, NEH will award grants to museums, libraries and archives, historic sites, independent research institutions, professional organizations, colleges and universities, and other cultural organizations across the country to help these entities continue to advance their mission during the interruption of their operations due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Louisiana's culture, arts, and humanities play a vital role into the success of our state's tourism industry," said Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser. "This emergency relief funding from NEH can offer aid to vulnerable areas looking for some budgetary assistance including, historic sites, museums, and libraries. I encourage all qualifying statewide partners to apply for this important NEH grant."

More information is available on the NEH grant webpage. The closing date for applications is May 11, 2020.
