Humanities projects are typically produced by humanities organizations, which have a mission explicitly related to the humanities and a history of specific work in the humanities. These organizations include, but are not limited to, historical societies and heritage groups, historic homes and sites, archives, oral history programs, popular life organizations, tribal entities, cultural centers, museums, non-profit libraries, literary organizations, non-profit educational organizations, historic preservation groups, non-profit media groups that report on culture, and other non-profit cultural organizations with missions or main activities that focus on developing and implementing public humanities programs. Nevada Humanities also encourages associations that use the humanities to unite different fields of research, such as history and science or medicine and literature. Nevada Humanities will consider funding requests from organizations in other fields or initiatives that also have the humanities as a central element of the proposed project for funding. When applying for a grant, applicants should describe their project as requested in the application and present their case.
Factors that will be taken into consideration include the strength of the organization's public-facing humanities programming; the strength of the proposed humanities project, its objectives, humanities content, and expected results; the level of community need and benefit identified in the application; the strength of service to underserved audiences and demographics; the competence of the proposed communication and marketing strategies and their likelihood of success; the competence of the proposed evaluation strategies; the strength of key personnel, humanities academics and project partners participating in the project; demand and availability of funds; capacity to ensure compliance with federal regulations that guide the use of federal funds; basic budget and descriptive report describing the use, impact, and results of grant funds for Nevada Humanities projects; data including the audience served, number and types of humanities programs implemented by the organization during the Performance Period, number of people who benefited from grant funding from Nevada Humanities Project; equalization and cost-sharing leveraged by allocated funds; certification of compliance with federal rules governing spending and use of federal funds; letters from organization to Nevada state legislators and to U. S. Representatives and Senators thanking them for supporting Nevada Humanities, their organization and their project.

Humanities projects can take many forms such as media and documentary programs, exhibitions, forums and debates, public dialogue and conversation, workshops, research projects with public components, publications, educational initiatives and programs, digital productions.
