Exhibit Hall Coffee Break
 Grant Makers Office Hours from 8-9 am
Three federal funding entities -– NHPRC, NEH, and IMLS – are jointly hosting office hours during the meeting, providing potential grant applicants/project directors with “one stop shopping” for federal grants information. The staffs from IMLS, NEH, and NHPRC will discuss their programs and answer your questions. We will be co-located in the conference Exhibit Hall and have selected these times to coincide with the Exhibit Hall’s coffee break and brunch that day. All of us at NEH, NHPRC, and IMLS encourage you to stop by to find out more about our grant programs, acquire relevant literature, and to discuss your project ideas with us. Please stop by and see us.
Details about the National Historical Publications and Records Commissionprograms:
NHPRC staff can discuss proposals for all deadlines. The next deadline is October 6, 2008 for these categories: Archives-Basic Projects
The March 2, 2009 deadline is for: State National Archival Partnerships
Guidelines and application deadlines for NEH Division of Preservation & Access grant categories can be found at: (http://www.neh.gov/grants/grantsbydivision.html#preservation)
Archives and special collections repositories are also eligible for funding opportunities in many of NEH's other programs, including the Division of Education Programs and the Division of Public Programs, Challenge Grants, and the Office of Digital Humanities. Staff at the SAA meeting will be representing the Division of Preservation and Access but can help to redirect inquiries that might be most suited for these other programs.
