Since 1967, the NEH has helped the Ohio History Connection (formerly known as the Ohio Historical Society) preserve the state’s history and make it accessible to the public. NEH-funded professional development programs for educators have brought teachers from across the United States to Ohio, where they studied the War of 1812 and American Indian cultures of the Ohio Valley. Recently, NEH funding has helped digitize Ohio’s history, preserving the state’s history for future generations and making it accessible today. Additionally, in 2020, the NEH awarded Ohio History Connection a CARES grant to help it manage the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
