How to Apply

How to Apply

  1. Determine your organization's eligibility and type of grant best-suited to your project. If you are curious about the application itself before creating an account, you may download a PDF for review.
  2. Create an account or login to an existing one using the online portal, and follow the steps to fill out your application.
  3. The Grant Officer reviews the LOI for completeness and compliance with the grant guidelines for the larger Grant types (Action/Innovation and Capacity Building/Planning) and then issues an invitation to the applicant that they may submit a final draft. The final draft will then be reviewed and discussed by Humanities Experts. Finally, these External Reviewers make recommendations to the Delaware Humanities Board. Opportunity grant decisions are made internally, by Delaware Humanities staff.
  4. Grant recipients are notified within the Grant's corresponding time frame. Action/Innovation Grant awards follow an established timeline, with final notification coming after the Board meetings in October and April. Opportunity Grant notifications typically require 30 days for submission, internal review, followed by the notification of the applicant.
