Program Description

Media Projects grants support the following formats: ? film and television projects; and ? radio projects. Film and television projects may be single programs or a series addressing significant figures, events, or ideas. Programs must be intended for national distribution. The Division of Public Programs welcomes projects ranging in length from short-form to broadcast-length video. Radio projects may involve single programs, limited series, or segments within an ongoing program. They may also develop new humanities content to augment existing radio programming or add greater historical background or humanities analysis to the subjects of existing programs. They may be intended for regional or national distribution. NEH encourages projects that engage public audiences through multiple formats in the exploration of humanities ideas. Proposed projects might include complementary components to a film, television, or radio project. These components should deepen the audience's understanding of the subject: for example, websites, mobile applications, museum exhibitions, book/film discussion programs, or podcasts. If you seek to develop a digital platform that is independent of a film, television, or radio project, you should apply to the Digital Projects for the Public grant program. Digital Projects for the Public does not, however, currently support production projects. If you seek to produce a digital platform independent of a film, television, or radio project, you should apply to the Museums, Libraries, and Cultural Organizations: Implementation Grants program. Grant categories Development grants enable media producers to collaborate with scholars to develop humanities content and to prepare programs for production. Grants should result in a script and should also yield a detailed plan for outreach and public engagement in collaboration with a partner organization or organizations. Production grants support the production and distribution of films, television programs, radio programs, and related programs that promise to engage the public. See application guidelines for Production Grants.
