The New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH) recently awarded $43,730 in Incubation Grant funding to nine organizations. Incubation Grants help organizations plan, research, prototype, and experiment for public humanities opportunities. From investigating potential components of a new program or expanding efforts to learn more about audiences, NJCH funding supports projects in the earliest stages of development.
Public humanities programming allows individuals to participate in lifelong learning activities and share in the exploration of history, values, culture, and beliefs. NJCH supports and acts as a resource for cultural and service-oriented nonprofit partners as they bring public humanities experiences to the citizens of New Jersey, harnessing the power of the humanities to strengthen communities.
