Awards are also made to create various reference resources that facilitate the use of cultural materials.

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.
