Open Government

Welcome to the Open Government Web page of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The information we are providing on this page is intended to help make the agency’s work more transparent to the public, while also making possible the public’s participation in the work of the Endowment. This effort is part of a government-wide initiative to promote openness in the work of federal agencies. (For detailed information about the initiative, visit the White House Web site or see the Open Government Directive (11-page PDF), issued by the Office of Management and Budget on December 8, 2009.)

This is the pilot version of NEH’s Open Government Web page. We expect to expand the page’s offerings substantially in the coming months, so please check back with us periodically for updated postings.
