– For a more thoughtful, informed, and civil society –


    Unfortunately, the ongoing government shutdown has impeded Missouri Humanities’ (MH) ability to withdraw funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support our partners and grantees throughout the state. As a result, we must suspend payment to grantees until such time as the government reopens. We will keep you informed of any updates to this status on our website.

    Please note that during the government shutdown, MH is still accepting grant applications through the usual submission process. We hope for a timely resolution to the shutdown, and we will issue grant awards as soon as funding is made available to our organization. If your MH-supported project requires immediate scheduling or financial adjustment, please call or email Clarice Britton at 314-781-9660 or clarice@mohumanities.org.
