Grant Description

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), a part of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), supports projects that promote the preservation and use of America's documentary heritage essential to understanding our democracy, history, and culture. The Commission seeks proposals to improve the training and education of professionals in the archival and historical publishing communities. Projects can be for professional education curriculum development; for basic and advanced institutes; or research seminars. Surveys, focus groups, and other activities to understand these professions and their educational and training needs are also eligible. In general, projects should anticipate results that will affect individuals in more than a single state. If your project is focused only on a single state, the proposal narrative must explain why the State Historical Records Advisory Board in your state cannot manage the proposed project. If staff review cannot find the information, the application will be ineligible. This program does not support requests from individuals for their own training, education, or professional advancement. A grant normally is for one to three years and up to $150,000. The Commission expects to make up to 4 grants in this category, for a total of up to $300,000 during the two rounds in a fiscal year. There are two competitions each year in this category. An additional funding opportunity will be published in June 2010 with an application deadline of October 7, 2010. Applicants may apply against either deadline. Cost sharing is required. It is the financial contribution the applicant pledges to the cost of a project. Cost sharing can include both direct and indirect expenses, in-kind contributions, non-Federal third-party contributions, and any income earned directly by the project. The NHPRC will provide up to 50 percent of the total project costs.
