NEH grants will support 206 new humanities projects, including a biography of novelist Willard Motley and a book on Venetian art and architecture, an interactive website on the 1951 Moton High School student strike led by 16-year-old Barbara Johns, a narrative website of postcards published and sent during the 1941 Siege of Leningrad, an inventory of the intangible cultural resources of San Francisco's Chinatown, and an archive of oral histories at the National Public Housing Museum.

CCAHA Awarded in Latest Funding from NEH

CCAHA is excited to announce that we have been awarded in the latest round of grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). This crucial funding will allow us to continue the preservation services we already provide on a national scale for a substantially reduced cost, such as onsite preservation planning, risk assessments, and digital preservation assessments; the Regional Heritage Stewardship Program offered in Appalachia and the Deep South; and online courses and free webinars on a wide range of collections care topics. It will also enable us to develop new offerings, including a sustainability training and toolkit for coastal New Jersey/Delaware institutions, a conference on the preservation of rapid response collections, and a full time, one-year preventive conservation position.

In total, the NEH awarded $33.8 million for 260 humanities projects across the country, and we are grateful to be among those selected. Read more at the NEH website.
