"...proposals for innovative, collaborative humanities projects using
the latest digital technologies for the benefit of the American
public, humanities scholarship, and the nation's cultural
institutions. These grants will support collaborations among
libraries, museums, archives, universities, and other cultural
organizations that may serve as models for the field. We encourage
projects that explore new ways to share, examine, and interpret
humanities collections in a digital environment and to develop new
uses and audiences for existing digital resources."
It almost looks like it was written with Wikipedia in mind. The grant
range is $50,000 to $350,000 over two years; not enormous, but it
seems worth the time of some Wikimedian grant writers.
With some creativity, there are probably some other NEH and possibly
NSF grants that Wikimedia might have a shot at as well.
