Open Government and Open Data

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.

High-value datasets from NEH

NEH now has data in XML format about every grant made by the agency since our founding in 1965. We also have information about every evaluator and panelist from 1988 – the present. The data can be found on the NEH page on the portal. It can also be downloaded directly from the NEH.
