From the NEH press release:
"We are happy to announce that two new partners have joined the National Digital Newspaper Program! NEH has made awards to the State Historical Society of Wisconsin and the University of Delaware to digitize newspapers from their states. Forty states and territories have now participated in the program, along with the District of Columbia. NEH and the Library of Congress are now two states closer to our goal of representing every state and U.S. territory in the open access historic newspaper database Chronicling America.
Awards have also been issued to state partners in North Dakota, Minnesota, Indiana, Idaho, Mississippi, Connecticut, California, West Virginia, Florida, and Puerto Rico to continue their contributions to Chronicling America. You can read more about all of the awards issued by NEH in July’s press release."
Congratulations to Wisconsin and Delaware for joining, and North Dakota, Minnesota, Indiana, Idaho, Mississippi, Connecticut, California, West Virginia, Florida, and Puerto Rico for adding to their Chronicling America collections in the future.
