WASHINGTON (March 4, 2014) — The Obama Administration requests a budget totaling $146,021,000 for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for fiscal year 2015. At the request level, all NEH program divisions and offices would receive increases over their FY 2014 funding.
Highlights of the FY 2015 funding request include:
- continued support for a special initiative, Bridging Cultures: Understanding the U.S. and the World, that is helping Americans better understand their rich and diverse history and heritage and the histories and cultures of other nations;
- a new initiative, entitled Standing Together: The Humanities and the Experience of War, that will support the nation’s active duty military, veterans, military families, and civilians by encouraging and expanding humanities projects that focus on the history, experiences, and meaning of war and military service; and
- continued support for creative partnerships, such as NEH’s ongoing collaboration with the National Science Foundation for projects that document, record, and archive endangered languages worldwide that are on the verge of extinction
The request will also enable NEH to provide support for an estimated one thousand excellent projects and programs in the humanities throughout the nation, including:
- the operations and activities of the 56 state and territorial humanities councils in support of tens of thousands of projects and programs that bring the humanities to millions of Americans in rural areas, urban neighborhoods, and suburban communities throughout the nation;
- advanced research and scholarship that expand our knowledge and understanding of the humanities;
- preservation of and increased accessibility to cultural heritage resources important to the American people, including historically significant U.S. newspapers;
- strengthened teaching and learning in the humanities in elementary and secondary schools and institutions of higher education;
- museum exhibitions, documentary films, library programs, and other opportunities for Americans to engage in lifelong learning in the humanities;
- projects that are spurring innovation and best practices in the use of digital humanities; and
- strengthened institutional base of the humanities through financial incentives provided by matching challenge grants
