Oklahoma Humanities Organizations Pandemic Emergency Grants 

Hope social

Oklahoma Humanities (OH) is grateful to announce over $400,000 in immediate emergency grant funding is available for cultural organizations statewide. The Oklahoma Humanities Organizations Pandemic Emergency Grants (or H.O.P.E. Grants) are intended to be used for emergency general operating support and staff retention in the humanities and cultural sectors.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic public health crisis, Oklahoma Humanities is providing emergency grants for general operating support and staff retention for cultural and humanities organizations in awards ranging from $5,000 to $25,000. The Oklahoma H.O.P.E. Grants (Oklahoma Humanities Organizations Pandemic Emergency Grants) initiative funding was made available by the $2.2. trillion relief package passed by the federal government on March 27, 2020. 

This emergency funding will support at-risk humanities positions and projects at museums, libraries and archives, historic sites, colleges and universities, and other cultural nonprofits that have been financially impacted by the coronavirus. OH is accepting applications on a rolling deadline from organizations and agencies wishing to apply for a HOPE Grant award of up to $25,000 with the opportunity for repeat awards.

Eligibility:

  1. Organizations must serve and have headquarters in Oklahoma
  2. Organizations must provide an annual agency budget and specific funding justification
  3. Organizations must agree to us the federal funding in a way that does not violate federal funding requirements
  4. Organizations must be able to receive grant awards via direct deposit

These H.O.P.E. Grants are meant to be awarded in an efficient manner. Applicants will be notified of funding within 5 business days once the application has been successfully submitted. Please contact Executive Director Caroline Lowery at Caroline@OkHumanities.org with any questions.


The Oklahoma H.O.P.E. Grants are made possible in by a national cultural stimulus package from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
