One Million Dollars in Grant Funding Available Through the National Historical Publications & Records Commission

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) under NARA has announced a new set of grants aimed at improving public discovery and use of historical records collections. With the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence coming up, the NHPRC is particularly interested in projects that promote discovery and access to collections that explore the ideals behind our nation’s founding and the continuous debate over those ideals to the present day. All types of historical records are eligible, including documents, photographs, born-digital records, and analog audio and moving images.  

Projects may also focus on broad movements in U.S. history, such as law, politics, social reform, business, military, the arts, and other aspects of the national experience, or on the papers of individual figure(s) in American history. Collections that center on the voices and history of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color are especially welcome. 

Up to five grants will be awarded for $150,000 to $350,000 each, with timelines of 1 to 3 years. Grants will begin no earlier than January 1, 2025. The deadline for drafts is February 15, 2024, and final applications will be due on May 8, 2024.  

Full details can be found on the National Archives website
