NEH Seal
(March 13, 2020)

As developments with COVID-19 and its effect on our communities continue to evolve, please know that the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is working to continue to serve the public and to accept, review, and process grant applications and awards according to our normal schedule.

Whether working at its headquarters in Washington, D.C., or remotely, NEH staff will be available to answer questions and provide assistance to applicants through the contact information provided in the guidelines. Current grantees can continue to access and submit materials as usual.

We understand that COVID-19 may impact your funded project as activities may be postponed or cancelled.  Please contact your project officer and grant management specialist through eGMS Reach so we can help you explore options such as extensions, budget revisions, and scope changes.  The NEH Office of Grant Management will confer with program staff and formally convey approved changes to your award through eGMS Reach.
