NEH Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Grants (HCRR) strengthen efforts to extend the life of collections materials and make their intellectual content widely accessible.

HCRR offers two kinds of awards:

Eligible collections materials include: books and manuscripts, photographs, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts, art and material culture, digital objects, and AV collections.
Major studies of cultural heritage repositories have cited sound recordings and moving images as formats that are seriously endangered. This grant program encourages applications that address the need to preserve and access such sources. Applicants may request funds to assess or establish intellectual and physical control of such materials as well as to digitize them. See: Audio Preservation at NEDCC
