Humanities Grant

February 25th, 2016

Agency Name: National Endowment for the Humanities
Description: Humanities Access grants help support capacity building for humanities programs that benefit one or more of the following groups: youth, communities of color, and economically disadvantaged populations. Humanities Access grants establish or augment term endowments (that is, endowments whose funds are entirely expended over the course of a set time period) to provide funding for existing programs at institutions such as public libraries, local and regional museums, historical societies, community colleges, HBCUs and tribal colleges, Hispanic-serving institutions, archival repositories, and other cultural organizations. Humanities Access grants are intended to seed longer-term endowment-building efforts. Programs supported by Humanities Access grants might include, for example • a summer project for teens at a local historical society; • internships for Native American students at a tribal museum; or • a Clemente course at a homeless shelter organized by a community college. Humanities Access Grants offer two years of match-based funding to be expended through a term endowment over the final three years of the five-year grant period. Humanities Access grant funds should not be used to replace existing program funds. Instead, the grant should expand or enhance an existing exemplary humanities program. Institutions that have never received an NEH grant and small to mid-sized institutions are especially encouraged to apply.

The purpose of Florida’s U&CF Grant Program is to provide financial assistance to local governments, Native American tribal governments, volunteer groups, nonprofit organizations and educational institutions to initiate or enhance local urban and community forestry programs and improve the urban environment within the state of Florida. The state of Florida anticipates an allocation of $400,000 for fiscal year 2016. However, the Florida Forest Service (FFS) has not received the federal funding to support this grant program at the time of issuance of this Request for proposal (RFP) and may have to delay contract execution until these funds are received. The primary purpose of this U&CF grant program is not beautification through tree planting, but to develop and enhance urban and community forestry programs. Total funding available for demonstration or site specific tree planting projects is limited to 20% of available funds ($80,000) and tree planting projects are limited to a maximum award of $20,000 per applicant.
The U&CF grant program is intended to help local governments, Native-American tribal governments, volunteer groups, nonprofit organizations and educational institutions get programs started and is not meant to be a continual funding source for staffing. The U&CF grant will fund staffing for no more than three grant years.

The US Forest Service has directed the FFS to focus on assisting communities to strengthen their urban forestry programs in the following four core areas:

1. Active involvement by community tree boards or citizen tree advisory groups.

2. Development of urban tree management plans based on current inventory data.

3. Program oversight by qualified professional staff or professional consultant.

4. Development of a tree ordinance that will enforce community tree care standards.

Addressing these four areas will involve education of citizens, local officials and tree care professionals. Encouraging volunteer and citizen group participation in these activities is also a key to program success. Some demonstration areas to show good urban forestry practices are also helpful and will be funded to a limited extent under this grant program.

Request for Proposal will be opened at the below address at 02:00 P.M., March 31, 2016.
