The primary emphasis of the We the People program is upon grant-making to scholars, teachers, filmmakers, curators, librarians, and others who submit proposals for projects that explore significant events and themes in our nation’s history and culture.

NEH grant programs and We the People

NEH invites We the People proposals in all of the agency’s programs and at all deadlines. Proposals are expected to meet the guidelines of the program that best fits the character of the project. A list of all programs and deadlines is available on the NEH website.

Proposals will be evaluated through NEH’s established review process and will not receive special consideration. The chairman reserves the right to determine which grants will be designated as We the People projects.
