Grant Description

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.Award Information:Applicants may apply for funding up $10,000 for up to two years. The Commission expects to make approximately 15 grants in this program. In accordance with Federal regulations, the Commission reserves, for Federal Government purposes, a royalty-free, non-exclusive, and irrevocable license to reproduce, publish, or otherwise use the work and authorize others to reproduce, publish, or otherwise use the work. The Commission requires that grant recipients acknowledge NHPRC grant assistance in all publications and other products that result from grant support. Cost Sharing:Cost sharing is required. Cost sharing is the financial contribution the applicant pledges to the cost of a project. Cost sharing can include the costs of editorial work, composition, design, production materials, printing and binding, marketing, and fulfillment. Subvention awards will not exceed $10,000. The Commission funds only the estimated losses a press expects to incur by publishing a particular volume. These can be calculated with a 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.The Commission may provide up to $3,000 for reprinting of NHPRC-sponsored or -endorsed volumes, whether in hardcover or paperback. The Commission will normally pay no more than half the costs associated with reprinting a volume.Application and Submission Information: Applicants must use the application process. See Subvention Grant Application Instructions. A complete application includes the Application for Federal Assistance (Standard Form 424), Assurances-Non-Construction Programs (Standard Form 424B), and the Subvention budget form.Before beginning the process, applicants should review full grant announcement (linked below) and the rules and regulations governing NHPRC grants under the Administering an NHPRC Grant section.
