PART 1206—NATIONAL HISTORICAL PUBLICATIONS AND RECORDS COMMISSION


§1206.50   What types of funding and cost sharing arrangements does the Commission make?

(a) Types of grants. (1) Matching grant. A matching grant is a Federal grant awarded only after the applicant raises its share of non-Federal support for a project. We will match only funds raised from non-Federal sources, either monies provided by the applicant's own institution specifically for the project or from a non-Federal third-party source. The Commission does not ordinarily make matching grants.

(2) Outright grant. Outright grants are those awards we make without any matching requirement. However, outright grants usually include a cost-sharing requirement.

(b) Cost sharing. (1) Cost sharing consists of the applicant's contribution to the cost of the project. The Commission ordinarily expects the applicant to provide cost sharing in an amount equal to the amount of the Federal grant award. Exceptions to the one-to-one cost sharing requirement may be set by the Commission in specific grant opportunity announcements.

(2) Cost sharing may include cash or in-kind contributions provided by the applicant or by a non-Federal third party.

(3) As indicated in 2 CFR part 2600, we do not pay indirect costs from grant funds, but allow indirect costs to be used for cost sharing.

§1206.62   Who reviews and evaluates grant proposals?

(a) State boards. State historical records advisory boards may evaluate your proposal according to Commission grant opportunity announcements.

(b) Peer reviewers. The NHPRC staff may ask external peer reviewers to evaluate the proposal according to Commission grant announcements.

(c) Other reviewers. The Commission staff may require additional reviews.

(d) NHPRC staff. NHPRC staff analyzes the reviewers' comments, and considers the appropriateness of the project toward fulfilling Commission goals, the proposal's completeness and conformity to application requirements. The staff, through a questions letter or email to you, raises issues and concerns and allows you the opportunity to respond. The staff makes recommendations to the Commission.

(e) The Commission. The Commission deliberates on all eligible proposals and recommends to the Archivist of the United States what action to take on each (fund, partially fund, endorse, reject, resubmit). By statute the Archivist chairs the Commission and has final authority to make or deny a grant.

(b) The grant period begins and ends on the dates specified in the award document.
