Hurricane Rita Library Grants Still Available from Humanities Source

Mary Alford reports

HUMANITIES TEXAS GRANTS FOR HURRICANE-AFFECTED TEXAS LIBRARIES

Recovery grants : Texas cultural and educational organizations affected by Hurricane Rita may request recovery grants of up to $5,000 for immediate needs resulting from the storm. Recovery grants support collection replacement,
conservation work, professional consultation, and even institutional expenses such as replacing shelving and roofing.

Book replacement grants : Texas public and school libraries that suffered losses to their collections as a result of the hurricane may apply for book replacement grants of up to $1,000 to support collection development in such humanities fields as literature and history. Purchases may include books, media
resources, and other educational materials. Libraries may request an
additional $500 to purchase materials that strengthen the teaching and study
of U.S.history and culture. These additional funds are made possible by the NEH's We
the People initiative.

No application forms are necessary. Please see our website:
http://www.humanitiestexas.org/grants/hurricane.htm

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through January 1, 2007, until grant funds have been exhausted.

The Humanities Texas Hurricane Rita Relief Fund is supported in part by a $30,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

Please direct any questions to Eric Lupfer, Humanities Texas Director of Grants and Education, at (512) 440-1991 or grants@humanitiestexas.org.
