The Wisconsin Humanities Council believes that public health and safety are top priorities. With the growing prevalence of COVID-19, or Coronavirus, nationally and with its appearance in Wisconsin, we are carefully monitoring both federal and state guidance on how to minimize exposure to and spread of the virus. The health and peace of mind of our staff, board, partners, grantees, and program participants will guide our decision-making in the coming weeks.

All administrative processes related to grants are continuing normally. However, until further notice, please submit all forms, reports and payment requests to the WHC via email, to michael.kean@wisconsinhumanities.org. Thank you!

Our April 15 grant deadline has been extended to April 24th. Learn more on our Grants page.

We will post any program-specific policies on our website and provide updates on relevant pages as needed. Please direct any grant or other programming questions or feedback to Wisconsin Humanities Council staff.

The WHC is fully operational, but staff are working from home and our landlord has locked the front door. If you need to drop something off at the WHC office, please email us to make arrangements.

We’re here to help! Read all program-specific policies here.
