Regional Funding Opportunities with Summer Deadlines

Let's Talk about Water in Florida

Florida Humanities is awarding Community Project Grants to nonprofit organizations and public institutions across Florida whose projects strengthen vibrant communities and cultures, promote civic engagement, spark thoughtful community dialogue, and reflect on the human experience across the Sunshine State.

These grants are designed to support a vast array of projects. Applicants can request up to $5,000. Several of the programmatic priorities are relevant to environmental education organizations. Perhaps the most relevant is: "Water as an essential component of life on our planet (environmentally, culturally, and historically), using the humanities to examine a community’s relationship with water as it relates to their cultural history."
