FAIN: BC-50457-09

Humanities Washington (Seattle, WA 98109-1658)
Ellen E. Terry (Project Director: March 2009 to August 2011)

To support regrants of up to $10,000 for locally-initiated humanities projects that address topics in American history and culture.

Humanities Washington will use its 2009 We the People grant to provide funding for our re-grants program. Through reading programs and film festivals, exhibits, lectures, websites and other projects, re-grants provide needed dollars to support community based initiatives around the state of Washington. These projects help Washington State residents foster a deeper understanding of American culture, institutions, and our collective historical and contemporary democratic principles. Project grants of up to $10,000 will support locally-initiated humanities projects that address American history and culture and Humanities Washington will solicit grant proposals for projects that fulfill the We the People mission for its spring and fall 2010 grant rounds. We the People will allow us to support additional projects and reach communities across Washington State through our re-grants program that we otherwise would not be able to fund.
