NMHC AWARDS OVER $127,000 IN GRANT FUNDS TO CULTURAL ORGANIZATIONS

SHARE:

In December, the New Mexico Humanities Council Board of Directors selected 11 diverse and impactful projects for sponsorship through its Major Grant Program. A total of $127,452.76 is being awarded to organizations based in the Pueblo of Zuni, Taos, Ruidoso, Silver City, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque. We are excited about how these projects will feature scholars, tradition-bearers, elders, historians and tribal leaders from around the state, from various parts of South America, and Australia.

Instead of having another major grant cycle in May, 2024 NMHC is seeking to launch a new quick grants program. Once solidified this new program will be accessible year round. Please watch our website for updates as this new program is still in development.
