The National Endowment for the Humanities, otherwise known as NEH, is the US federal government's independent agency that was established under the National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities Act of 1965.
Currently, NEH is primarily responsible for supporting research studies, education opportunities, preservation, and public programs in field of humanities.
In line with its agency objectives, NEH has recently established a funding opportunity entitled the National Digital Newspaper Program(NDNP).
The goal of the National Digital Newspaper Program is to crate a national digital resource of historically significant newspapers published between the years 1836 and 1922, from all of the States and its territories.
For the National Digital Newspaper Program, NEH will collaborate with the Library of Congress, where they will work towards making the digitized resources a searchable database and be freely accessible through the internet.
Every participating state will be awarded funds to support them in the National Digital Newspaper Program, provided that sufficient will be allocated for these projects and that the states will not include activities that are not within the scope of the program, such as:
a) the digitization of serials that do not fit the definition of newspaper used by the Library of Congress, as well as the digitization of serials that are not described as newspapers in associated CONSER bibliographic records
b) the digitization of newspapers that were published outside the 1836-1922 chronological span
