The New York Council for the Humanities has awarded its grants for their May, June and July grant rounds. Council grants focus on creativity and experimentation within the public humanities. From exploring the impact of La Marqueta in Harlem to revealing figures lost to history like Josephine Herrick, Council grants fund programs that are hoped to creatively apply the humanities to illuminate the cultural riches of New York State.
To date in 2016, the New York Council for the Humanities has awarded $292,994 grant support to 74 cultural institutions, community groups, and service organizations, including the grants funded between May and July of this year. The complete list of grantees for these rounds of funding are available online [pdf]
