Grant and Funding Opportunities

Funding Opportunities for Community-Based Programs

The Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) supports the exemplary humanities work of individuals, nonprofits, schools, and collectives across the state through its competitive grants. MHC also administers grant funds appropriated by the State of Minnesota for legislatively named and competitive grants. MHC is a statewide organization and our grants are available to anyone in the state who meets the established criteria.

Grantmaking Philosophy

MHC integrates equity, inclusion, and diversity into our work. We prioritize organizations whose leadership reflects the communities they serve. We are always educating ourselves and seeking new ways to reduce barriers and de-center dominant culture in the funding process.
