The ongoing government shutdown is forcing Missouri Humanities to suspend its Grants Program indefinitely.

The organization says that means it cannot withdrawl funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support partners and grantees in the Show Me State.

This affects education, family, grant, heritage, public, and veteran programs run through the organization.

Grant requests are not accepted at this time.

A statement on the Missouri Humanities website says:

Unfortunately, the ongoing government shutdown has impeded Missouri Humanities’ (MH) ability to withdraw funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support our partners and grantees throughout the state. As a result, we must suspend payment to grantees until such time as the government reopens. We will keep you informed of any updates to this status on our website.

Please note that during the government shutdown, MH will NOT be accepting grant applications. We hope for a timely resolution to the shutdown, and we will issue grant awards as soon as funding is made available to our organization. QUESTIONS? Call 314-781-9660.
