The article reports that the NEH Challenge Grants Program assists the nation's academic institutions and cultural organizations in securing greater levels of long-term support for and improvements in their programs, activities and resources in the humanities. Direct expenditure of grant funds covers a wide range, from the construction and renovation of buildings to the purchase of equipment and acquisitions to enhance collections. Institutions are limited to two awards. In the case of a first challenge grant three non-federal dollars must be raised for each federal dollar offered, and for institutions seeking a second award, four non-federal dollars are required to match each dollar of the NEH offer.
