The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) of the
National Archives supports projects that promote access to America's
historical records to encourage understanding of our democracy, history,
and culture. The NHPRC seeks proposals to publish documentary editions of
historical records. Projects may focus on the papers of major figures from
American history or cover broad historical movements in politics, military,
business, social reform, the arts, and other aspects of the national
experience. The historical value of the records and their expected
usefulness to broad audiences must justify the costs of the project.

The goal of this program is to provide access to, and editorial context
for, the historical documents and records that tell the American story. The
NHPRC encourages projects, whenever possible and appropriate, to provide
access to these materials in a free and open online environment, without
precluding other forms of publication.

Grants are awarded for collecting, describing, preserving, compiling,
transcribing, annotating, editing, encoding, and publishing documentary
source materials in print and online. Because of the focus on documentary
sources, grants do not support preparation of critical editions of
published works unless such works are just a small portion of the larger
project.

A grant is for one year only and for up to $200,000. Grants begin no
earlier than July 1, 2017.

Deadlines:

Draft (optional): August 1, 2016.

Final Deadline: October 6, 2016.
