Humanities Iowa is pleased that your organization is interested in the possibility of securing a grant with us. While the process can seem overwhelming, the staff at HI is here to help. Please feel free to give us a call with questions or concerns--both large and small--as we move through the grant process together.
Before you apply, please read through our Grant Guidelines for information on grant eligibility.
Humanities Iowa staff welcomes the opportunity to consult with applicants on proposals by telephone or e-mail. Please contact Tim Johnson, Grants Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (319) 335-4149.
We will work with you to strengthen the application and answer questions. If you would like to submit a draft proposal for critique, please do so several weeks before the deadline and we will help you refine the document before you submit a final version.
A complete major grant application consists of a cover sheet, budget form, budget narrative, project narrative, a one-page humanities evaluator description and the signed Agreement and Certifications form. The complete application should be no more than 12 pages. Please do not send additional attachments, unless expressly requested by Humanities Iowa staff. Please send one signed original and 20 stapled copies. Please do not attach a cover letter or put the copies in folders or binders.
Mini grant applications are accepted year-round and are evaluated upon receipt. We prefer to receive mini grant applications at least four weeks before the start date of the project, but we can sometimes accommodate shorter deadlines.
