To support the Humanities on the Road speakers bureau; innovative outreach efforts and partnerships with fellow humanities-focused organizations, such as Hometown Nevada rural workshops and events and community collaborations with KUNR Public Radio; the creation of content for the Online Nevada Encyclopedia; and grants in Nevada and American history.

Nevada Humanities requests We the People funding to support four programs in our FY 2011 program initiatives. These programs include: Humanities on the Road, a speakers’ bureau that sends Nevada's college professors, writers, and other scholars throughout the state to provide Nevada’s diverse communities with presentations and workshops on a variety of humanities subjects that include history, culture, and contemporary issues of importance to Nevadans; Nevada Humanities programmatic outreach efforts and partnerships; the creation of written and media content for the Online Nevada Encyclopedia; and the American and Nevada history component of Nevada Humanities’ ongoing regrant program.
