The call for DHCP proposals began on 13 October 2021 for projects starting 1 April 2022. The deadline to submit applications is 12 January 2022, at 11:59 pm, Pacific Standard Time (PST). Not-for-profit genealogical organizations are eligible.
There’s a lot of really helpful information to help in writing a successful proposal. The guidelines have changed since last year.
Having served on the DHCP external advisory committee my experience is that only strong proposals will get funded. There’s no point in writing a proposal at the last minute — it shows and wastes everyone’s time.
