What grants have been newly released from the federal government? The Department of Education has several new funding opportunities. Two of them focus on providing nonprofit organizations monies to ensure that personnel working in Special Education and Early Intervention services have the necessary skills and knowledge. HRSA’s Service Area Competition grants have just been announced. These grants support public and private nonprofit community-based and patient-directed organizations that provide primary health care services to the Nation’s medically underserved populations. The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks projects that encourage public engagement with historical records, including the development of new tools that enable people to engage online.

National Archives and Records Administration
Grant Title:Public Engagement with Historical Records
Grant Info: https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=306189
Details: The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks projects that encourage public engagement with historical records, including the development of new tools that enable people to engage online. The NHPRC is looking for projects that create models and technologies that other institutions can freely adopt. In general, collaborations between archivists, documentary editors, historians, educators, and/or community-based individuals are more likely to create a competitive proposal. Projects that focus on innovative methods to introduce primary source materials and how to use them in multiple locations also are more likely to create a competitive proposal. Projects might create and develop programs to engage people in the study and use of historical records for institutional, educational or personal reasons. For example, an applicant can: • Enlist volunteer “citizen archivists” in projects to accelerate access to historical records, especially those online. This may include, but is not limited to, efforts to identify, tag, transcribe, annotate, or otherwise enhance digitized historical records. • Develop educational programs for K-12 students, undergraduate classes, or community members that encourage them to engage with historical records already in repositories or that are collected as part of the project. • Collect primary source material from people through public gatherings and sponsor discussions or websites about the results. • Use historical records in artistic endeavors. This could include K-12 students, undergraduate classes, or community members. Examples include projects that encourage researching and writing life stories for performance; using record facsimiles in painting, sculpture, or audiovisual collages; or using text as lyrics for music or as music. • Develop technologies that encourage the sharing of information about historical records. For a comprehensive list of the Commission’s limitations on funding, please see “What we do and do not fund” (http://www.archives.gov/nhprc/apply/eligibility.html). Applications that consist entirely of ineligible activities will not be considered. Award Information A grant normally is for one to three years. The Commission expects to make up to three grants of between $50,000 and $150,000. The total amount allocated for this program is up to $275,000. Grants begin no earlier than July 1, 2019.

Eligibility Information Eligible applicants: • Nonprofit organizations or institutions • Colleges, universities, and other academic institutions • State or local government agencies • Federally-acknowledged or state-recognized Native American tribes or groups Cost Sharing The total costs of a project are shared between the NHPRC and the applicant organization.
