FINAL UPDATE: New Mexico Humanities Council funds 68 organizations with CARES Act Grant, totaling more than $433,000 **NOTE: CARES Act Applications CLOSED

14 Jul 2020

The New Mexico Humanities Council (NMHC) has awarded $433,800 in grant funds to 68 New Mexico cultural nonprofit organizations including museums, libraries, community centers, and historical societies throughout the state. Funding for these grants was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) passed by the U.S. Congress.  Intended to give emergency operating funds to humanities-based organizations which face significant financial losses resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, New Mexico's share of the funds has been exhausted and the application process closed.

NMHC’s Grant Committee reviewed 85 applications from cultural organizations requesting over $600,000 in grant funds to offset estimated losses of $6,645,366.  From Deming to Anton Chico, NMHC made its funding decisions by evaluating factors such as applicants’ immediate financial need, geographic location, humanities focus, and service to underrepresented groups. Award amounts ranged from $1,500-$7,500.  Funds are intended to help organizations remain connected with their communities, as some are the only cultural provider in their area.  Grant funds will support a variety of needs including operating expenses, salaries, staff retention, and support for programs that transition resources and in-person programming to online platforms. 

“On behalf of the board of the NMHC, we are humbled to be able to assist so many of New Mexico’s excellent cultural organizations,” said Arif Khan, NMHC Board Chair. “New Mexico’s rich and varied cultural life is one of our state’s most valuable resources. Organizations throughout New Mexico work every day, most with a modest and dedicated staff, to support, grow, and contribute to that cultural ecosystem and support their local communities.  As we go through this difficult moment together, these grants will help organizations large and small to survive the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, retain employees, and continue to deliver on their missions.” 

The New Mexico Humanities Council (NMHC) supports public programs in New Mexico communities which inspire inclusive conversations that strengthen our civil society and celebrate diverse human experiences. Learn more at www.nmhumanities.org.
