COVID-19 Grants Awarded to 123 Mass. Humanities Nonprofits

June 20, 2020 — Mass Humanities, the state-based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, earlier this week announced the awarding of $572,500 in unrestricted grants to 123 humanities-focused nonprofit organizations across Massachusetts through funding received by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

The humanities—our history, culture, and ideas—will be essential in any recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in Massachusetts,” said Brian Boyles, executive director of Mass Humanities. “We’re grateful to NEH for providing these funds to protect the humanities infrastructure of the state. We only regret that we could not meet the needs of every applicant. We will continue to seek ways to assist our grantees and other institutions in surviving this crisis.”
