Funding Amount:

Though requests for up to $750,000 are eligible, the federal portions of NEH challenge grants will generally not exceed $500,000.


Institutions may apply for only one NEH challenge grant in a calendar year.

The mission of this Challenge Grants program is to strengthen the institutional base of the humanities by enabling infrastructure development and capacity building. Grants aim to help institutions secure long-term support for their core activities and expand efforts to preserve and create access to outstanding humanities materials.

Grant recipients must raise—from nonfederal third-party donors—three times the amount of federal funds offered for grants up to $500,000 and four times the amount of federal funds offered for grants in excess of $500,000.
