Amount: Max of $60,000 (12 months); minimum of $5,000 (1 month).
Deadline: April 10, 2019
Purpose: **NEH encourages applicants to consider the impact—both immediate and long term—of the momentous events of 1776. We invite applications that explore the role of the Declaration of Independence and other foundational documents in the making of U.S. history. In addition, we welcome applications that explore the experiences of states and communities beyond the original colonies in joining the nation, since they have their own stories of becoming part of the United States. We also invite applications examining the stories and contributions of under-represented communities in our nation’s history.
**NEH encourages projects that promote a deeper understanding of American history and culture, as well as projects that advance civic education and knowledge of America’s core principles of government.
**NEH invites projects related to its Standing Together initiative, which encourages projects related to war and military service.
