Over the next several months we will be making some changes in the Virginia Humanities Grant Program.  These include revisions to the application process and new proposal requirements, as well as increased limits on the amount that applicants may request.

Beginning immediately, the limit on Open Grant requests is increased to $20,000; but special requirements will be placed on requests greater than $10,000. Please contact Virginia Humanities grant staff for further information.

Also, beginning July 1, 2020, the limit on Discretionary Grants will increase to $5,000. The current limit of $3,000 remains in effect until then.

Prospective applicants should continue to check this website for updates. For additional information, contact grants@virginiahumanities.org or (434) 924-3296.
