NEH Challenge Grants

March 10, 2010

Funding: Other

Challenge Grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities are capacity-building grants, intended to help institutions and organizations secure long-term improvements in and support for their humanities programs and resources.

Grants may be used to establish or enhance endowments or spend-down funds that generate expendable earnings to support ongoing program activities. Funds may also be used for one-time capital expenditures (such as construction and renovation, purchase of equipment, and acquisitions) that bring long-term benefits to the institution and to the humanities more broadly.

Challenge Grant funds should not merely replace funds already being expended on the humanities, but instead should reflect careful strategic planning to strengthen the institution’s activities in and commitment to the advancement of knowledge and understanding of the humanities. There is a matching requirement: Recipients must raise three times the amount of federal funds offered.

Application Deadline: May 5, 2010
