NEH for All

Throughout the United States, National Endowment for the Humanities funding supports academic research, public programs, education initiatives, and preservation projects that strengthen communities, preserve our cultural heritage, and help us explore our past and present. 

Crises facing the National Endowment for the Humanities have underscored a crucial need to increase awareness among policymakers and the public regarding the value of the NEH, in particular, and the humanities, more generally. 

NEH for All, A Digital Clearinghouse 


A digital clearinghouse that profiles influential National Endowment for the Humanities projects across the nation, NEH for All articulates how the Endowment benefits a wide range of communities. Profiles reflect grants that are diverse across three dimensions: geography, area of impact, and type of humanities activity (e.g. research, education, public programming, preservation, and digital). Cumulatively, they demonstrate the NEH’s impact across a number of areas, including:

  • Preserving cultural heritage;
  • Ensuring rural access to high-quality programming;
  • Enriching K-12 education;
  • Providing life-long learning opportunities for diverse audiences;
  • Facilitating community dialogue;
  • Supporting cutting-edge research;
  • Fostering local tourism economies;
  • Supporting veterans;
  • Promoting civic education; and
  • Collecting and curating local histories.

In addition to finding more than 170 profiles showcasing NEH-funded work happening in every state, on you can find briefing documents and other resources that articulate the impact of NEH funding.

NEH for All has received generous support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
