NEH Launches New Online Database

WASHINGTON, (September 21, 2009)

Public can now search Web site for information about NEH-funded projects

Today the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) unveiled a new Funded Projects Query Form that allows visitors to search online for information on all projects funded by NEH since 1980. The form is accessible from the NEH homepage or directly at The database will be updated quarterly after new awards are made. The form has been made available as a part of NEH’s transparency efforts.

Visitors can explore the database using a variety of search terms including project director name, key words, organization, state, and award date range. Searches can also be narrowed by grant program, division, and several other fields. Search results provide project title, recipient, and award amount information. A document with answers to frequently asked questions can be found at

NEH welcomes feedback. Visitors are encouraged to contact the NEH Chief Information Officer at @email with questions or comments, or to report errors in the software or in the data returned.
