NEXT BICENTENNIAL GRANT DEADLINE JANUARY 3, 2017
In conjunction with Mississippi's bicentennial year, the Mississippi Humanities Council is partnering with Mississippi Development Authority's Visit Mississippi to oversee the Bicentennial Year Grants Program. The initiative will award up to $10,000 to individual public programs celebrating the state's historic year. The goal of this grant program is to inspire and empower local organizations throughout Mississippi to develop public programs documenting, interpreting and exploring community culture. Applications will be accepted on a monthly basis through November 2017, with grant deadlines falling on the first of each month (or the first business day following the first, if the first is a holiday). The next deadline is January 3, 2017. For more information, including grant guidelines and how to apply, please visit http://www.mshumanities.org/index.php/grants.
