Elko Grant Meeting

  • Elko County Library 720 South Court Street Elko, NV United States (map)

Nevada Humanities will hold a series of free informational grant meetings in Henderson, Las Vegas, Reno, and Elko, in January and February 2019. These meetings are open to anyone interested in learning more about applying for project grant funding from Nevada Humanities. Nevada Humanities offers grants of up to $5,000 to nonprofit organizations and government entities, such as libraries and schools, to fund public and educational programs in the humanities.

The Nevada Humanities grant application deadline is March 10, 2019, for projects taking place beginning July 1, 2019, and running through June 30, 2020. Applications requesting $1,000 or less may be submitted at any time, at least ten weeks prior to the proposed project date. Grant guidelines are available on the Nevada Humanities website at www.nevadahumanities.org.

Nevada Humanities funds projects that encourage community engagement and conversation. This may take the form of face-to-face dialogue, such as lectures, forums, and round-table discussions, or through programs that stimulate thought and reflection, such as media productions, film screenings, exhibitions, local history projects, and projects that explore local culture and Nevada’s diverse heritage and unique places. 

Free parking is available at all meeting locations. Individual grant information consultations are also available with Nevada Humanities staff by appointment or by phone. Contact Bobbie Ann Howell at bahowell@nevadahumanities.org, or at 702-800-4670 to schedule an appointment, or for more information about Nevada Humanities and the informational grant meetings.
