Funding will support grants and public programs, programs for the 2010 Virginia Festival of the Book, a residential fellowship, and the radio feature, "Folklife Fieldnotes."

The Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH) will continue its commitment to the people, history, traditions, and cultures that are integral parts of Virginias and Americas history. VFH will use "We the People" funds to award grants to organizations and to conduct programs of its own that focus on the peoples and parts of history whose contributions might otherwise go unnoted. Building on existing strengths and contacts with numerous constituencies within the state, these programs focus on the complex story of Virginia, past and present, and help establish the context in which Virginians understand themselves in the 21st Century. They address issues of identity and culture and the importance of local history and traditions within a rapidly changing economic and cultural landscape. All VFH programs support the We the People goal to encourage and enhance the teaching, study, and understanding of American history, culture, and democratic principles.
