The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has announced $31.5 million in grants for 226 humanities projects across the country. These grants will support the publication of a Library of America anthology and accompanying national public programs series at 90 public libraries on 400 years of Latino poetry and enable the development of machine-learning algorithms to compare and classify features of Realist, Impressionist, and Barbizon School paintings to help art historians trace the spread of artistic styles.  

This round of funding, NEH’s third and last for fiscal year 2022, will support vital humanities research, education, preservation, and public programs. These peer-reviewed grants were awarded in addition to $52 million in annual operating support provided to the national network of state and jurisdictional humanities councils. 

Congratulations to the New York State recipients!
