Community Project Grants, at their core, meet the needs of local communities. While remaining open to funding locally-driven public humanities projects, Florida Humanities may give special consideration to applications that focus on one or more of the following five programmatic priorities:
Racial Injustice: Sharing stories and perspectives highlighting historical and modern race-based inequities and injustices that disadvantage communities of colour, employing the humanities to bring communities together in constructive dialogue.
Civics and Democracy: Current issues in American democracy and civics including but not limited to voting, suffrage, the power of protest, voting rights, voter suppression, contested elections, and ideological polarization.
Water: 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.
Public Health: The impact of public health issues on the sustainability of Florida’s communities within a diverse, globalizing world, exploring the continuity and change of cultural heritage in relation to public health crises, including global pandemics. Explorations may include the disparities in health access and service for various groups within the community, such as economic resources, sex, and race/ethnicity. NOTE: Public humanities programs focused on health must use the humanities to think critically and provide a deep level of analysis and interpretation. Social service projects focused on public health and not grounded in the humanities are ineligible for funding.
Immigrant and Refugee Stories: Programs that share refugees’ and immigrants’ personal accounts and perspectives, using the humanities to compassionately reflect upon community challenges and triumphs in our increasingly diverse and changing Florida landscape.
