The African American History Grants from the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH) are given with the goals of increasing public understanding of African American history and culture, supporting research and documentation of African American historic sites, strengthening institutions that interpret Virginia’s African American history, and providing a solid intellectual foundation for African American heritage tourism in every region of Virginia. Grants will provide up to $3,000.
Any incorporated non-profit organization in Virginia is eligible to apply. Incorporated nonprofit organizations based outside of Virginia are also eligible if their project deals with a subject or subjects directly related to Virginia and a significant audience within the state is anticipated. Individuals are not eligible to apply for VFH Grants. Deadline: February 1, 2008.
