The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) announced plans to award $1 million in emergency grants to libraries, museums, colleges, universities, and other cultural and historical hit by Hurricane Harvey, which has devastated parts of Texas and Louisiana with record-breaking rainfall and flooding.
 

“NEH has designated these funds to support the people in Texas and Louisiana in their efforts to protect the historic materials that document their invaluable contributions to American culture,” said Jon Peede, acting NEH chairman, in a statement. “We are proud to partner with Humanities Texas and the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities and their dedicated staffs in a coordinated federal-state response.”
 

The emergency fund includes $200,000 for the humanities councils of both states, which will be allotted to needy institutions based on local needs. The NEH will also provide funding for the Texas Cultural Emergency Response Alliance and the Heritage Emergency National Task Force to conduct outreach and assess damage.
