2010 Spring IHC Community Grant Application Workshop - Chicago

Registration for the workshop is now closed. Workshops will be held around the state later this year and in Chicago in November. For more details, call 312.422.5580.

Representatives from Illinois nonprofit organizations are invited to attend a free public Community Grant Application workshop.

IHC Program Officer Jessica Besser Rosenberg will staff the meeting and field questions about guidelines for applying for various types of IHC Community Grants, including project grants, media grants, technical assistance grants, and general support grants for humanities organizations. Any nonprofit group, organization, or institution in Illinois is eligible to apply for financial support from the IHC for a public project in the humanities.

This workshop is free and open to the public. The workshop is now full and registration is closed. For more information on upcoming workshops, call 312.422.5580.

Please note: The IHC makes it a priority to fund projects developed by, for, or aimed at reaching new or historically neglected audiences. These include but are not limited to residents of rural communities, men and women with little formal education, inner city or other underserved youth (in after school or weekend programs), people who are economically disadvantaged, or the elderly. The IHC especially invites applications from organizations that serve these communities and strongly encourages other applicants to extend their proposed programs to include such audiences. The IHC also encourages applications for projects about American history and culture.
