America’s Historical & Cultural Organizations

The National Endowment for the Humanities is offering planning and implementation grants under the America’s Historical & Cultural Organizations program. Projects eligible for funding include:

  • Exhibitions
  • Interpretations of historic places or events
  • Book/film discussion programs, living history presentations or other programs at public locations
  • Interpretative websites

Planning grants support the early stages of a project’s development, including: consultation with scholars, refinement of themes, preliminary design and audience evaluation. Awards typically range from $40,000 to $75,000 and don’t reach the higher end of the scale unless they are exceptionally ambitious, complex and have the capability to reach extremely wide audiences.

Implementation grants are designed to support final scholarly research and the design, development, production and installation of a  project for presentation to the public. These awards typically do not exceed  $400,000, though projects that have special significance and reach a wide audience can receive up to $1,000,000.

January 9, 2013 is the deadline for both grants. For more information, see the link below:
