APPLICATION DEADLINE: 2024 Public Impact Projects at Smaller Organizations Grant Opportunity

June 12

The National Endowment for the Humanities is now accepting applications to the 2024 Public Impact Projects at Smaller Organizations grant program with a deadline for submission of June 12, 2024. To assist in expanding impact, reach, and excellence of your public programs, these awards support a variety of activities that focus on enriching interpretive strategies, strengthening interpretive skill sets and enhancing community engagement with public-facing programs. NEH’s Public Impact Projects encourage you to think critically about how your organization currently communicates analytical ideas to public audiences. Proposed projects should consider how you meet the needs of your community, what skills staff and volunteers need to effectively communicate complex ideas to visitors, and/or what untapped interpretive possibilities your site and collections may hold. Awards of up to $25,000 may support:

  • Consultation with scholars
  • Evaluation of current interpretive programs
  • Development of interpretive plans
  • Implementation of public programs
  • Professional development activities to enhance the interpretive skills of staff and/or volunteers

A recording of the webinar will be posted on the website approximately one week following the live event.

Call For Peer Reviewers

Are you interested in serving as a peer reviewer for this or another NEH grant program?

All NEH applications are evaluated by a panel of peer reviewers with relevant professional expertise. As a reviewer not only will you provide essential assistance in identifying the highest quality applications, but your feedback will also play a role in helping to strengthen projects from across the field, whether they receive NEH funding or not. If you are considering applying for an NEH award in the future, serving as a reviewer is an excellent way to prepare for the process of developing your proposal. As a reviewer you will learn more about what makes applications competitive and get an inside look at the review process.

For the Public Impact Projects grant program reviewers will be given a 4- to 6-week period in July and August to read and provide written comments on approximately 15 of the applications. You may not serve as a reviewer for this program if your organization submits an application to the program.

If you would like to serve as a reviewer for this or other NEH grant programs, please email jaustin@neh.gov. The subject line of the email should read “Call for Reviewers” and in the body of the message you should include your name, a brief biographical paragraph or resume, and your contact information.
