The creation of enhanced grant making for projects that deal with the topics of immigration, cultural heritage, military history as well as the interpretation of historic sites and significant figures in history. Support will also be given toward continuing the development of the Council's website so as to incorporate a digital archive and online exhibition of grantee projects specifically related to American history and culture, and to set up tools to make the projects and the discussions that they inspire more widely available.
