Extending the Reach of the Humanities Across America

One of the highest priorities of the National Endowment for the
Humanities is to make the power and inspiration of the humanities
accessible to all Americans. Extending the Reach is a special
initiative to provide new resources for creative teaching,
scholarship, public programming, and preservation efforts in the
humanities by:

    *   supporting humanities initiatives in selected U.S. states
        and territories that have not received as much NEH support
        as others;

    *   enhancing work in the humanities at Historically Black,
        Hispanic-Serving, and Tribal Colleges and Universities.

Outreach to Selected States and Territories: Nonprofit cultural and
educational organizations in the following states and Puerto Rico
may apply for Extending the Reach grants in 2000 and 2001:

    Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Idaho, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana,
    Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Texas,
    Washington, Wyoming

Organizations that have not recently received an NEH grant are
especially encouraged to apply to three new grant programs:

Consultation Grants

    Support museums, libraries, historical organizations, community
    associations, and film or radio producers in the early stages of
    developing a project or institutional planning. Guidelines and
    application materials are available here

Preservation Assistance Grants

    Help libraries, archives, museums and historical organizations
    assess preservation needs and enhance their ability to care for
    their humanities collections. Guidelines and application
    materials are available here

Humanities Scholar-in-Residence Grants

    Offer middle and high schools an opportunity to collaborate with
    a humanities scholar from a local college or university over the
    course of a year. Guidelines and application materials are
    available here

Please note that Consultation and Preservation Assistance grants are
not restricted to organizations in the fifteen jurisdictions listed
above; applications are welcomed from institutions in all the states
and U.S. territories.

Grants for Historically Black, Hispanic-Serving, and Tribal Colleges
and Universities: Extending the Reach grants are available to
advance scholarship and institutional development at Historically
Black, Hispanic-Serving and Tribal Colleges and Universities:

Institutional Grants

    Enhance existing humanities programs, provide support for new
    programs, or strengthen institutional resources for the
    humanities. For application information, see
