Funds Available for Interpreting America's Historic Places
Places where history was made have a special power to connect people to the past and to impress upon us the deeper lessons of our history. NEH invites proposals for public programs that exploit the evocative power of historic places to address themes and issues central to American history.
Are you preserving an historic place? If so, you might also want to think about exhibits, interpretive materials, heritage tourism partnerships, or other strategies for helping the public to learn more about your historic place, and the people, stories, events, and ideas that make it a significant part of American history.
"Interpreting America's Historic Places" grants support public humanities programs that use one or more historic sites to interpret important topics in American history. Projects can interpret a single historic site, a series of sites, whole neighborhoods, communities or towns, or larger geographic regions.
September 12, 2006, is the deadline for proposals for both Consultation Grants and Planning Grants for Interpreting America's Historic Places.
January 23, 2007, is the deadline for proposals for Implementation Grants.
