We’re very pleased to announce the results of the second cycle of NHN’s microfunding program. We received a total of nine proposals this year, which were reviewed by a committee of seven professionals including historians, librarians, and archivists. The NHN Board has approved funding for four proposals that earned enthusiastic support from our reviewers:
Project: “Roots & Wings Oral History Project”

Project Director: Sarah K. Loose
With their $250 award, ROP will fund audio editing of oral histories related to grassroots human dignity organizing in rural Oregon.
Project: “Archival boxes, the key to organizing our past”
Organization: Latah County Historical Society
Project Director: Zachary Wnek, Museum Curator
The society will use their $250 award to purchase archival supplies for preserving historical records.

OQP will use their $235 award to purchase photography equipment for documenting historic quilts according to national standards.

The museum will use their $250 award to purchase archival supplies to preserve documents and photographs on the history of fires and firefighting in Oregon.
