CHARLESTON (AP) — Several West Virginia organizations are receiving grants to support humanities programs.

The West Virginia Humanities Council says it recently awarded six grants. The council is the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and offers a variety of grants to nonprofit organizations in West Virginia to support educational programming.

Officials say the council budgets more than $600,000 for grants and programs in the humanities each year. The recently awarded grants were for projects requesting $1,500 or less.

The recent grant recipients are: the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Public Library, the Harrison County Commission, Shepherd University, the Concord University Research and Development Corporation, the Appalachian Forest Heritage Area in Randolph County and the Northern Webster County Improvement Council.
