The National Historical Publications & Records Commission, the grantmaking

enduring value.

We welcome your comments on the announcements on Annotation. In addition,
each post includes information on webinars about these new programs that we
will hold between February 19-26.

These webinars are designed to provide direct contact with the NHPRC staff
to ask questions and share your ideas.

We need your feedback by Thursday, February 27th in order to meet the new
schedule for the FY 2015 grants cycle.
