Programs:Civic Engagement Grants

PHC's Civic Engagement Grant Initiative is now closed. Please check back soon for more information about the next round.


PHC's new grant direction is grounded in our strategic priority to champion and advocate for the humanities and its importance to everyday life and work in Pennsylvania.

PHC is committed to increasing awareness of the positive impact the humanities has on the development of critical thinking skills, empathy for others and a sense of purpose in our lives and our power to make a collective difference in a 21st century global society.

Our aim is to inspire Pennsylvanians to value the humanities for personal growth and community improvement, which begins with civic dialogues and leads to the development of creative solutions and actions.

Through our new program direction, we will develop and facilitate partnerships and relationships that generate more resources for humanities initiatives and lead to stronger policies supporting humanities education.

We see the humanities, history, arts, culture, customs and traditions, as the catalyst that inspires actions that lead to improvements.
