HIHumanities Sustaining the Humanities through the American Rescue Plan (SHARP) grants are designed to provide relief funding for Hawai‘i-based humanities nonprofits, and nonprofits doing humanities programming to help our communities recover and rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic.
As part of SHARP, HIHumanites is distributing $649,140 to 36 organizations from Hawaiʻi, Maui, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Oʻahu, and Kauaʻi. We received applications from 63 organizations that reported financial losses totaling $9,310,227 for 2020.
Our privilege, as Hawaiʻi Council for the Humanities, is to be inspired and moved by the depth and breadth of our humanities organizations here in Hawaiʻi. All of these applicants should be honored for their care and stewardship of our communities.
