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
As of September 2021, NJCH has awarded $402,000 to 36 organizations in COVID-19 Response Grant funding. These awards were made possible through the American Rescue Plan (ARP) funding. Throughout 2020, NJCH awarded $660,000 to support 84 organizations that were facing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Awards given in 2020 were made possible by CARES Act funding. Both CARES and ARP funding was 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.
