CFVI Announces Availability of $1.3M in NEH Grants for Humanities Projects Funding

Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands

The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI), in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), is pleased to announce the availability of funding for humanities-based projects in the USVI, with grants of up to $25,000 each.

CFVI has partnered with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) since 2020 and since then has awarded nearly $1.3 million to community organizations throughout the U.S. Virgin Islands to support humanities programming and activities.

“We are so very thankful to NEH for continuing this important Initiative which provides opportunities to enrich the lives of people throughout the U.S. Virgin Islands through projects focused on humanities education, lifelong learning, and public humanities programming,” said CFVI President Dee Baecher-Brown.

CFVI will make dedicated subawards for humanities programming that reflects the unique needs of the U.S. Virgin Islands’ diverse communities, advances the public’s knowledge and understanding of the humanities, culture, heritage and preservation, and makes humanities programs accessible to all people throughout the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Grants are available to fund humanities programs, projects and initiatives such as book festivals, literacy campaigns, speaker’s bureaus, teacher development, cultural tourism, humanities publications, films, exhibitions and projects that preserve and provide access to cultural and educational resources in the USVI. Projects that incorporate Virgin Islands’ history/culture are encouraged.

Applications will be reviewed for eligibility and completeness, and evaluated by a committee composed of experts in humanities, nonprofit grantmaking, and/or U.S. Virgin Islands’ history and culture.

Applications must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. (AST) on March 28 through the CFVI grant portal at www.cfvi.co/CFVIGrantsPortal. For more information on grant requirements, eligibility, evaluation criteria and reporting, or to submit an application, visit www.cfvi.net.

Applicants with additional questions are encouraged to contact CFVI Grants and Programs Director Beth Nuttall at bethn@cfvi.net.
