To support IHC's Community Grants Program which funds organizations statewide that develop and present humanities programs for their communities; the Road Scholars Speakers Bureau, and three traveling exhibitions, "Between Fences," "Journey Stories," and "New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music," including workshops for teachers.

The IHC seeks $ $191,460 for We the People in Illinois to develop statewide programs through Museum on Main Street (MoMS), the Road Scholars Speakers Bureau, and grants. These programs will deal with Westward expansion, American roots music, Illinois' state and national political history, and other important topics in American history and culture. This programming will benefit rural and downstate audiences primarily, though not exclusively.
