NEW FY22 Grant Types for Delaware Humanities!

After careful investigation through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Grant process and listening to our community members, Delaware Humanities is pleased to announce our Grant Types for 2022:

Opportunity Grants 

Opportunity Grants offer funding for smaller projects or planning periods for larger projects.

  • Applications can be submitted year-round, and a 1:1 match for Cost-Share is required, which can be a combination of Cash and In-Kind. Exact match can be waived in some circumstances, please consult Grant Officer.
  • Amount: up to $5,000 can be awarded.

  • Deadline: Processed internally on a rolling basis, typically within 3 weeks’ time from submission. 

    Action/Innovation Grants (NEW)

    Action/Innovation Grants are project/event based for larger-scale ambitions.

  • As with Opportunity Grants, a 1:1 match for Cost-Share is required, it can be combination of Cash and In-Kind. No waiver is permitted for the larger grant types.
  • A Letter of Interest (LOI) is required, submitted through our online grant system Foundant- link HERE, and the PDF of the LOI is downloadable here. Successful applicants will be invited to submit a final draft application.
  • Successful Action/Innovation Grant applications are fully envisioned and conceptualized, clearly aligned with one of our four Core Concepts, and grounded in public humanities work, but require funding to be put into ‘Action’
  • Amount: $5,001-18,000 can be awarded.
  • Deadlines: LOI Deadline is June 1, 2022. Invitations to applicants will be sent by June 15, 2022.

  • Awards announced: early October, 2022 

Capacity Building/Planning Grants (NEW)

  • An LOI is required, and successful applicants will be invited to submit a final draft application.

  • Deadlines: COMING SOON!
