Senior Program Officer Joshua Sternfeld will be available to meet with ARSC attendees for 20-minute one-on-one consultations to discuss National Endowment for the Humanities funding opportunities.  Requests for a consultation should be made in advance by email: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.  Ideal windows for scheduling a meeting are: Thursday, May 3 after 12:30pm and Friday, May 4 after 3:00pm.  If possible, please request multiple windows when you are free; accommodations will be made on a first come, first serve basis.  Meetings will be held in the lobby of the hotel.

The NEH Division of Preservation and Access offers several grant programs that support activities related to the preservation of audiovisual collections, including the following:

Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions: https://www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/preservation-assistance-grants-smaller-institutions
Small and mid-size cultural repositories constitute the large majority of collecting institutions in the United States. These organizations often lack the resources to address the preservation needs of their collections. Preservation Assistance Grants can improve an institution's capacity to preserve its holdings and use its collections more effectively for work in the humanities. This grant program provides small and mid-sized libraries, archives, museums, and historical organizations with grants of up to $6,000 to support on-site consultation by a preservation professional, enable staff to attend preservation training workshops and other educational events, or help purchase preservation supplies and equipment.

(NEW!) Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge Grants: https://www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/infrastructure-and-capacity-building-challenge-grants
The mission of this Challenge Grants program is to strengthen the institutional base of the humanities by enabling infrastructure development and capacity building. Grants aim to help institutions secure long-term support for their core activities and expand efforts to preserve and create access to outstanding humanities materials. Applications are welcome from colleges and universities, museums, public libraries, research institutions, historical societies and historic sites, scholarly associations, state humanities councils, and other nonprofit humanities entities. Programs that involve collaboration among multiple institutions are eligible as well, but one institution must serve as the lead agent and formal applicant of record.

Humanities Collections and Reference Resources (HCRR): https://www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/humanities-collections-and-reference-resources
Through HCRR, the division funds projects that preserve and create intellectual access to collections of books, journals, newspapers, manuscript and archival materials, maps, still and moving images, sound recordings, art, objects of material culture, and digital objects. It also provides strong support for the creation of dictionaries, encyclopedias, catalogs, and other reference works and research tools of major importance to the humanities. Because it is now possible to allow digital access, through a single entry point, to humanities materials housed in many different repositories and to use these materials in new ways, the program encourages projects that unite, integrate, or aggregate digital collections and resources.

Common Heritage: https://www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/common-heritage
The program supports events organized by community cultural institutions, which members of the public will be invited to attend. At these events experienced staff will digitize the community historical materials brought in by the public. Project staff will also record descriptive information-provided by community attendees-about the historical materials. Contributors will be given a free digital copy of their items to take home, along with the original materials. With the owner's permission, digital copies of these materials would be included in the institutions' collections. Historical photographs, artifacts, documents, family letters, art works, and audiovisual recordings are among the many items eligible for digitization and public commemoration.

Research and Development: https://www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/research-and-development
Through its Research and Development grants, the division supports projects that advance the nation's capacity to preserve and provide access to humanities resources. These projects cover an array of activities, including devising more effective physical methods of preserving humanities collections; developing new procedures to create reference works; and establishing standards and practices.

Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections<http://www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/JISC.html>: https://www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/sustaining-cultural-heritage-collections
This grant program supports planning and implementing preventive conservation measures, which typically include managing relative humidity and temperature levels in collection spaces, providing protective storage enclosures and systems for collections, and safeguarding collections from theft and fire.  This program encourages sustainable preservation strategies, which are based on an understanding of the materials in collections, the performance of the building systems, the nature of the climate, the economic costs, and the impact on the environment.

Preservation and Access Education and Training: https://www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/preservation-and-access-education-and-training
The Endowment considers support for education and training to be an essential component of its national preservation effort. Grants are made for regional preservation field services to help ensure that smaller cultural institutions across the country receive the kind of advice and knowledge they require to preserve their collections, as well as for graduate education in conservation for library and museum professionals and for the training of mid-career professionals in collections care and conservation. Grants are also made for projects that focus on the skills and knowledge required to provide or enhance intellectual access to humanities collections.
