Overview:

The Arkansas Humanities Council is an Arkansas nonprofit corporation. The Internal Revenue Service has determined that the council is a public charity under the provisions of section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. The Arkansas Humanities Council is an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The purpose of the Arkansas Humanities Council is to promote understanding, appreciation, and use of the humanities in Arkansas. To achieve its purpose, the council awards grants through a competitive application process to nonprofit groups and organizations so they can plan, conduct, and evaluate projects in the humanities for Arkansas citizens.

Public Program Mini-Grants are awards for lectures, workshops, and other public programs that require a small amount of money and that involve time constraints that make it impossible to apply for public program major grants.
