With funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, Cooper-Siegel will use funds to anchor itself in the community as a strong humanities institution.
We will use the grant funds to bridge the gap among the communities we serve through online recorded stories told by our community members about what it is like to live, work, learn and play here. We believe that giving people a chance to learn about their neighbors and community in this way will help to build a sense of togetherness and camaraderie that is so strongly needed to thrive personally and professionally.
