Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions Guidelines Now Available

The National Endowment for the Humanities’ Division of Preservation and Access has offered Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions since 2000. These grants help small and mid-sized cultural heritage institutions such as libraries, museums, historical societies, archival repositories, town and county records offices, and colleges and universities improve their ability to preserve and care for their humanities collections.  Awards of up to $6,000 support preservation related collection assessments, consultations, purchase of preservation supplies and equipment, training and workshops, and institutional and collaborative disaster and emergency planning.  The 2017 guidelines for Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions are available at https://www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/preservation-assistance-grants-smaller-institutions.  You will also find sample project descriptions, sample narratives, and a list of frequently asked questions. The deadline for applications is May 2, 2017.
