      National Endowment for the Humanities Offers Special Initiative to Help Fund
      Local History Resources Deadline: May 1, 2002 The National Endowment for the
      Humanities (NEH) has announced a special initiative through its Challenge
      Grants program to help small institutions improve their humanities resources
      in the area of local history. The goals of the initiative include the
      creation of oppor- tunities for research, education, and public programs in
      local history, especially in communities underserved by humanities
      activities; the establishment of long-term partnerships among educational
      and cultural organizations within communities; aiding organizations with
      strategic planning; and building a base of financial support for long-term
      programming. Awards ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 will require recipients
      to raise an equal amount from non-federal sources. Except for the one-to-one
      matching ratio (NEH Challenge Grants normally require a match of either
      three- or four-to-one), the guidelines for the Challenge Grants program
      govern the initiative and should be used to prepare an application. Any U.S.
      nonprofit organization that has not previously held an NEH Challenge Grant
      is eligible to apply. Prefer- ence will be given to institutions with annual
      budgets of less than $100,000 and to institutions setting up new endowments
      for humanities programs. For complete eligibility information and
      application procedures, see the Challenge Grants guidelines at the NEH Web
      site or call the Office of Challenge Grants. Contact: Office of Challenge
      Grants National Endowment for the Humanities Tel: (202) 606-8309
