Our Vision is a New Jersey that delights in diversity, appreciates that there are no easy answers, and finds joy and understanding in the humanities. We do this by enabling public programs and humanities experiences that deepen our understanding of ourselves and our world.
COVID–19 RESPONSE GRANTS
We have awarded nearly $650,000 to support 82 humanities organizations, statewide, that are facing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This rapid-response support was made possible by CARES Act funding, allocated through the NEH, and made available in two categories—General Operational Support and Program Support.
As a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, we ensure that public humanities programming is available statewide. NJCH is present in every Congressional District in New Jersey. Impact reports, detailing partnerships and programs, are provided to Congressional delegates annually.
