INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana nonprofits are encouraged to apply for grants in 2017 for projects that seek to engage the public in the humanities or provide historic preservation education.

Through its annual grant programs, Indiana Humanities funds a variety of programs across the state yearly. In 2017, Indiana Humanities will also provide INcommon grants for projects that explore the social, economic, cultural and racial issues that confront Indiana communities as part of a special National Endowment for the Humanities initiative.

Humanities Initiative Grants of up to $2,000 are awarded twice a year to nonprofit organizations for public humanities programs such as town hall meetings, exhibits, and reading and discussion programs. The 2017 application deadlines are Jan. 30 and July 31.
