For Planning and Basic Research (Tier I) projects, the maximum award is $75,000 for up to two years. For Advanced Implementation (Tier II) projects, the maximum award is $350,000 for up to three years. Successful applicants will be awarded a grant in outright funds, federal matching funds, or a combination of the two, depending on the applicant’s preference and the availability of NEH funds. Matching funds are released when a grantee secures gift funds from eligible third parties. Although cost sharing is not required, in most cases, grants cover no more than 80 percent of project costs.
The Research and Development program supports projects
that address major challenges in preserving or providing access to humanities
collections and resources. These challenges include the need to find better
ways to preserve materials of critical importance to the nation’s cultural
heritage—from fragile artifacts and manuscripts to analog recordings and
digital assets subject to technological obsolescence—and to develop advanced
modes of organizing, searching, discovering, and using such materials.
This program recognizes that finding solutions to complex
problems often requires forming interdisciplinary project teams, bringing
together participants with expertise in the humanities; in preservation; and in
information, computer, and natural science. All projects must demonstrate how advances in
preservation and access would benefit the cultural heritage community in
supporting humanities research, teaching, or public programming. Research and Development offers two funding tiers in
order to address projects at all stages of development and implementation.
Tier I: Planning and Basic Research supports the following activities:
and preliminary work for large-scale research and development projects; and
basic research projects, such as case studies, experiments, or the development
of iterative tools.
Tier II: Advanced Implementation supports projects at a more advanced stage
of implementation for the following activities:
development of standards, practices, methodologies, or workflows for preserving
and creating access to humanities collections; and
research addressing preservation and access issues concerning humanities
