AHA Initiatives & Projects

The AHA announces a major new initiative to offer $2.5 million in grants to dozens of small history-related organizations adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities’ American Rescue Plan: Humanities Grantmaking Program, the AHA’s Grants to Sustain and Advance the Work of Historical Organizations provides financial support from $10,000 to $75,000 for short-term projects that explore new ideas or build on experiments initiated during the pandemic. Membership associations, site- or location-based institutions, and history and humanities departments at historically Black and tribally controlled colleges and universities with annual budgets of less than $750,000 are eligible to apply between October 15 and December 14, 2021.  Recipients will be announced by March 1, 2022. Successful applicants may begin projects as early as April 1, 2022. More information on application requirements is available at, or contact project director Dana Schaffer, the deputy director of the AHA, with any questions.
