Grants available to humanities nonprofits for Ida recovery

The Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, with the support of the state of Louisiana, is offering grant opportunities to non-profit organizations for ongoing disaster recovery from Hurricane Ida. Grant amounts range from $1,000–$10,000, and applications are open now to organizations in the 25 parishes declared federal disaster areas.

Humanities-based nonprofit organizations from the following parishes are eligible to apply: Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberia, Iberville, Jefferson, Lafourche, Livingston, Orleans, Plaquemines, Pointe Coupee, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. Helena, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Martin, St. Mary, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne, Washington, West Baton Rouge and West Feliciana.

Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis until funds are fully expended. Only 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status organizations, public-facing organizations operating within accredited institutions of higher learning, state and local governmental agencies and state and federally recognized Native American tribal governments are eligible to receive grant funds.

Organizations reaching underserved populations are particularly encouraged to apply. Emergency Recovery Grants provide funds for facility repairs or upgrades to reduce vulnerability, clean up, remediation, rental of temporary meeting space or other action that can mitigate the effects of past or future natural disaster damage.

Organizations interested in learning more about the 2022 Emergency Recovery Grants are invited to attend a virtual information session on November 15 or December 8, 2022. To register click here.
