Grant Description

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission promotes the preservation and use of America's documentary heritage essential to understanding our democracy, history, and culture. The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks proposals from non-profit presses for subventions to publish volumes of NHPRC-sponsored or endorsed historical documentary editions. Through its subvention grants, the NHPRC promotes the widest possible distribution and use of Commission-supported documentary editions and encourages the highest archival permanence standards for paper, printing, and binding. The Commission expects vigorous and innovative marketing efforts on the part of grantees to reach scholars, teachers, and all other audiences. The Commission funds only the estimated losses a press expects to incur by publishing a particular volume. These can be calculated with a simple formula provided by the Association of American University Presses: average net price multiplied by estimated first three years' sales, subtracted from the total manufacturing and non-manufacturing costs of the volume. Subvention grants cannot exceed $10,000. The Commission may provide up to $3,000 for reprinting of NHPRC-sponsored or -endorsed volumes, whether in hardcover or paperback. NHPRC support begins no earlier than December 1, 2008.
