The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Preservation and Access is accepting applications for the Research and Development program. The purpose of this program is to support projects that address major challenges in preserving or providing access to humanities collections and resources.
This program supports projects at all stages of development, from early planning and stand-alone studies, to advanced implementation. Research and Development projects contribute to the evolving and expanding body of knowledge for heritage practitioners, and for that reason, outcomes may take many forms.
