WISCONSIN — Financial relief is now available to Wisconsin nonprofits that have been affected by the coronavirus.

The Wisconsin Humanities Council has established the Wisconsin Humanities CARES Relief Grant program to help Wisconsin's humanities and cultural organizations that are struggling amid this pandemic.

The program will distribute close to $540,000 in federal relief funding across the state. Each eligible organization can apply for up to $10,000 in funds and has until May 15 to do so.

"We are so glad to be able to offer nonprofits this assistance. These grants will help them weather these hard times by easing the burden of operating costs, like salaries and rent," says Dena Wortzel, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Humanities Council.

According to Wisconsin Humanities, "to be eligible, applicants must be nonprofit organizations located in Wisconsin that provide public humanities programming as a significant part of their mission."
