July 1, 1999 deadline

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is a grant-making
agency of the U.S. federal government that support projects in the
humanities. Eligible applicants are: U.S. nonprofit associations,
institutions, and organizations, as well as U.S. citizens and
foreign nationals who have been legal residents in the United States
for a period of at least the three years immediately preceding the
submission of the application.

NEH's Division of Preservation and Access supports projects that
will create, preserve and increase the availability of resources
important for research, education, and public programming in the
humanities. Support may be sought to preserve the intellectual
content and aid bibliographic control of collections; to compile
bibliographies, descriptive catalogs, and guides to cultural
holdings; to create dictionaries, encyclopedias, databases, and
other types of research tools and reference works; and to stabilize
material culture collections through the appropriate housing and
storing of objects, improved environmental control, and the
installation of security, lighting, and fire-prevention systems.
Applications may also be submitted for national and regional
education and training projects, regional preservation field service
programs, and research and demonstration projects that are intended
to enhance institutional practice and the use of technology for
preservation and access.

Projects may encompass collections of books, journals, newspapers,
manuscript and archival materials, maps, still and moving images,
sound recordings, and objects of material culture held by libraries,
archives, museums, historical organizations, and other repositories.

The Division has a single, annual DEADLINE for applications, July 1.
Final decisions will be announced the following March.  Guidelines
and instructions can be downloaded from the NEH Web site:

"What's New". <URL:>
