Heritage Grants Program

Heritage GransMichigan is a state with many stories. The Michigan Humanities Council’s Heritage Grants, supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, supports projects that explore local histories of race and cultural identity in Michigan. These competitive grants will be awarded to nonprofit organizations to support exhibits, digital projects, oral history programs, documentaries, community conversations, and other activities that explore and share the history, experiences, vitality, and authentic voices of cultural identity groups in Michigan. We welcome creativity and encourage applicants to think beyond the general ideas above. Partnerships between larger and small organizations are encouraged.
