In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and resultant unemployment and under-employment of many public historians, the National Council on Public History opened an RFP in July 2020 for virtual programming or projects to be planned and executed through the rest of the year. Because NCPH has a small staff and small capacity, the organizers agreed to take the lead on planning and execution, with assistance in the form of promotion and access to NCPH platforms. 

We welcome you to read this post on our blog, History@Work, for more information about the impetus for and ethos behind this RFP. In line with the original goals for the allocation of this funding, we particularly prioritized proposals from public historians who have been laid off or furloughed by the COVID-19 pandemic; BIPOC public historians; LGBTQ+ public historians; and disabled public historians.
