A little bit of something about everything related to grant writing.
Any time. Quick Grants.
Project planning: Quick Grants may be used to pay for the services
of a humanities consultant, technical consultants such as exhibit
designers, travel expenses, and other incidental costs involved
in the preparation of a project plan. These grants are intended
for groups that would otherwise have little access to humanities
or technical advisors, have limited staff size, or lack experience
in project development. Quick Grants may not be used for grant-writing
Program implementation: Organizations in communities with limited
access to humanities programming that have an opportunity to conduct
a humanities program that requires a small amount of funding and
does not fit within the Project Grant application timeline may
apply for a Quick Grant to implement a program.
