OHC Announces New Grant Funds Available

Oklahoma City, OK -- The Oklahoma Humanities Council (OHC) is now accepting applications and drafts for Oklahoma nonprofits wishing to apply for a Major Grant award of up to $8,500 or a Challenge Grant award of up to $15,000.

The OHC grants program encourages cultural programming on the local level across the state. Eligible projects must support the OHC mission to strengthen communities by helping Oklahomans learn about the human experience, understand new perspectives, and participate knowledgeably in civic life. Grant projects may be structured in a variety of ways: lectures, panel discussions, websites, audio or video productions, exhibitions, and more.

"OHC funds projects that explore the human experience," said Ann Thompson, Executive Director. "We welcome applications from any nonprofit in the state that has a project deeply rooted in the humanities disciplines."

Drafts must be submitted no later than March 1, and all final applications must be submitted no later than March 15 via the council's online granting system. Applicants must allow at least 90 days between the final application deadline and the date of the proposed program or presentation.
