Indiana Humanities’ Action Grants provide tax-exempt organizations with funds to develop and implement responsive and meaningful humanities programming. The goal is to support projects that help people learn new information, consider different perspectives, share ideas and understand one another better. Programs may come in a variety of formats—workshops, presentations, reading/discussion programs, exhibitions, podcasts, film documentaries and more—as long as they’re open to the public and utilize the humanities as a tool for engagement.
