The Dartmouth Digital History Initiative has received generous support from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), a statutory body affiliated with the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration. The NHPRC supports a wide range of activities to preserve, publish, and encourage the use of documentary sources relating to the history of the United States. In 2018, the NHPRC chose the DDHI as a recipient for an Access to Historical Records: Major Initiatives grant.
