$1.2 million in humanities recovery and growth funding now available through PA SHARP

Today we are excited to launch PA SHARP, our $1.2 million humanities recovery and growth program. Through this initiative we will be able to offer up to $20,000 in flexible funding to eligible organizations across the state.

PA SHARP provides an exciting opportunity to reimagine, reinvent, and re-envision humanities work through planning, capacity building, and creative programming. To support this goal, we are partnering with our grantees to help lead Pennsylvania’s recovery through what we’re calling the PA SHARP Learning Network -- a statewide community fostering resource sharing, networking, professional development, and mutual support.
