The Incubation and Action Grant program at NJCH provides funding for public humanities projects through a competitive grant process. The Newark Public Library received an Action Grant to host a summer poetry workshop for teens and young adults, resulting in a published anthology of the work of the poet participants. Camden County College also received an Action Grant to examine the impact and lasting legacy of 1968, a year of intense social and political events and movements.
