Match Your Project to a Grant Program

NEH offers a wide variety of grant programs. We’ve created this list to help you zero in on the grant program that might suit the activity you have in mind. If you would like some advice about which grant program would be appropriate, an NEH program officer will be happy to talk with you. To start the process, pick the division or office that you’d think would be most appropriate for your project and make an inquiry.
