The Morris County Heritage Commission is pleased to host a New Jersey Council for the Humanities grant proposal workshop at the Cultural Center on Friday April 5 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

NJCH’s grants officer Robert Apgar will lead workshop participants through the Council’s grant program guidelines and offer strategies for successful application submissions.

The New Jersey Council for the Humanities invites New Jersey-based nonprofit organizations and public entities to submit requests for funding in support of their public humanities projects. The Council regularly receives applications from public libraries, historical societies, museums, arts groups, service organizations and institutions of higher education.

NJCH is especially interested in projects that address the Council’s theme of Justice, which encourages historical, philosophical, legal, political and/or cross-cultural reflection upon the concept of justice and its application in community and social institutions.

Grants are awarded through a competitive review process several times each year. As a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Council receives federal funding for its grants program.

Recent grant recipients include The Alliance for Morris County Parks, which received a $2,000 mini-grant for its Lenni Lenape Day, and the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts in Madison, which received a $5,000 major grant for its Child Indentures as Social Welfare exhibit.

The grant proposal workshop is free, but advance registration is appreciated.

To register, please contact Robert Apgar at NJCH by phone at 609.695.4838 or by email at [email protected] no later than March 27. Additional information on all of the Council’s programs can be found at
