NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE HUMANITIES

DIVISION OF PRESERVATION AND ACCESS

 

Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions help small and 
mid-sized institutions, such as libraries, museums, historical 
societies, archival repositories, town and county records offices, and 
colleges, improve their ability to preserve and care for their 
humanities collections.  Awards of up to $6000 support preservation 
related collection assessments, consultations, workshops and training, 
and institutional and collaborative disaster and emergency planning. 
Grants cover consultant fees, workshop registration fees, related travel 
and per diem expenses, and the costs of purchasing and shipping 
preservation supplies and equipment.

 

All applications to the NEH must be submitted through Grants.gov. See 
the application guidelines for details.

 

The 2009 guidelines for Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller 
Institutions are available at 
http://www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/pag.html. You will also find sample 
project descriptions, sample narratives, and a list of frequently asked 
questions. The deadline for applications is May 14, 2009.

 

Small and mid-sized institutions that have never received an NEH grant 
are especially encouraged to apply.
