We are very grateful to the Florida Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities for supporting us with the CARES Act Grant + the Additional CARES Act Grant. These grants provided us the opportunity to pay bills for the insurance (six months), the bookkeeper (six months) and the 10-hr position Administrative Assistant from October through February (five months). Without their support, we could not have operated smoothly through the challenging time of COVID-19. From ALL of us: sincere THANK YOU to the Florida Humanities Council and National Endowment for the Humanities!
