Posted on Nov 3, 2022 in Media Sustainability

U.S. non-profit organizations and institutions of higher education can apply for grants to participate in a newspaper program.

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Division of Preservation and Access is accepting grant applications for the National Digital Newspaper Program. This program aims to create a national digital resource of historically significant newspapers published between 1690 and 1963 from all 56 states and U.S. jurisdictions.

The Library of Congress (LC) will maintain this searchable database, which will be freely accessible online. The accompanying US Newspaper Directory of bibliographic and holdings information directs users to newspaper titles available in all types of formats.

Ten grants up to US$325,000 will be awarded.

The application deadline is Jan. 12. 2023.
