SHARE THIS ARTICLE

Funds will help organizations increase their staff capacity and retention.

“Staffing the Humanities” responds to needs identified through Mass Humanities pandemic relief grant programs, CARES and SHARP, as well as a 2021 survey of recent applicants and grantees. Forty five percent of SHARP grantees requested funds for staffing. Fifty four percent of survey respondents selected “Staffing the Humanities” as their top choice for a grant program. “Staffing the Humanities” will support the growth and development of humanities programs across the Commonwealth by providing staffing funds to help organizations increase their staff capacity and retention.
