Indiana Humanities' A More Perfect Union Grant provides tax-exempt organizations with funds to develop and implement public programs that promote civic education and that help address the civic-health challenges that Indiana faces. The goal is to foster civil discourse, deepen understanding of the American experience, and help the public to understand how informed, active civic engagement strengthens our country's democracy.

The National Endowment for the Humanities provided funding for the A More Perfect Union Grants.
