Grant Opportunity Reminder

NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE HUMANITIES
Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Grants (HCRR)

Deadline: July 20, 2017

Grant Amounts:
Up to $350,000 for Implementation grants; Up to $50,000 for Foundation Projects

The NEH Humanities Collections and Reference Resources program supports projects that provide an essential underpinning for scholarship, education, and public programming in the humanities.  Funding from this program strengthens efforts to extend the life of collections materials and make their intellectual content widely accessible. Awards are also made to create various reference resources that facilitate the use of cultural materials.

HCRR OFFERS TWO KINDS OF AWARDS
1) Implementation Grants 
2) Foundation Grants - for planning, assessment, and pilot efforts 

ELIGIBLE GRANT ACTIVITIES INCLUDE: Planning; Assessments; Digitization (including audio recordings); Rehousing; Conservation treatment leading to enhanced access; Arrangement and description; Preserving and improving access to born-digital sources.

What's New for 2017?
Applicants for HCRR Foundations grants may request an additional $10,000 (beyond the $50,000 maximum) for a partnership/mentorship opportunity. The additional funds would be used to support inter-institutional planning and pilot activities, linking smaller and larger institutions.

In conjunction with NEH's Common Good initiative, applicants to HCRR may request support to create, preserve, and make available oral history interviews with individuals who can provide eyewitness insights on the experience of war — actual military experience, and/or  the impact of war on the American home front during wartime and its aftermath.
