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, see Office of Management and Budget memorandum M-10-06, "Open Government Directive.").
