Small Grants

Several NEH-funded projects offer organizations opportunities to create and host public programs (lectures, discussion groups, living history, etc.) in local venues.  Smaller museums, libraries, and community groups typically participate in these programs.  Each project is different, and some of the deadlines have passed.
