SHARP


Sustaining the Humanities through the American Rescue Plan (SHARP) Emergency Relief Grant Program Available to Guam Nonprofits Affected by COVID-19

Humanities Guåhan supports the important work of nonprofit organizations that explore, preserve, and engage us in our shared heritage and community. They help us connect to our histories, understand our rich diversity, express our identities and tell our stories. They help us embody our best selves.

In light of the serious challenges brought on by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it's important for us that the work of these organizations continues.

At Humanities Guåhan, we feel privileged to be able to offer support to Guam-based nonprofit organizations through our SHARP Emergency Relief Grant Program. This program is made possible by funding from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021 through the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

Small organizations with limited resources or limited access to support, as well as organizations that serve underserved communities, and those that are engaged in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts are encouraged to apply.

Please select which option best suits your needs from the following grant opportunities:

  HG SHARP Grants for Cultural and Humanities Nonprofits

Cultural and humanities based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in Guam that are experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic may apply for up to $20,000 in relief funds, for general operations and pre-planned programs taking place in late 2021 through 2022.

 HG SHARP Grants for Other Nonprofits

Nonprofit organizations in Guam that are experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic may apply for up to $20,000 in relief funds and use them toward expenses for pre-planned cultural or humanities education programs taking place in late 2021 through 2022. Funds from this grant opportunity may not be used for operational costs.



Applications will be reviewed by a panel of humanities scholars and other community members and will be considered based on need and merit. We will review submissions and notify applicants as expeditiously as possible. We will continue accepting applications until October 9, 2021 or until grant funds are no longer available, whichever date is earlier. Due to limited funds, we may not be able to fund all eligible applicants.

We recommend that you use a computer, rather than a mobile device, to complete the Submittable application.
