The first round of funding for the year will support 204 projects across the country.

The grants, which total $28.1 million and are the first round awarded this year, will support projects at museums, libraries, universities and historic sites in 39 states and Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Among the projects is the creation of an immersive online resource by the Jane Austen Summer Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which will allow people to explore Austen’s writings, personal artifacts and historical documents within a recreated interior of her home.
