Wisconsin Humanities CARES Relief Grant 2020

 The Poy Sippi Public Library is both pleased and excited to let you know that we recently received a Wisconsin Humanities CARES Relief Grant in the amount of $4,513.00.  This grant is part of a special Wisconsin Humanities grant initiative that is providing funding to nonprofit humanities and cultural organizations facing financial hardship resulting from the COVID-19 coronavirus.  This grant supports our general operating expenses for a three-month period ending October 31, 2020.  (In our case, we requested funds to cover a one-month period.)  Funding for this relief grant was provided to Wisconsin Humanities by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan. Wisconsin Humanities is a non-profit organization whose mission is to strengthen the roots of the community life through support of educational and cultural programs that inspire civic participation and individual imagination for communities across Wisconsin.
