NEH Preservation Assistance Grants

From: Laura Word <lword>
Date: Wednesday, January 29, 2003
New guidelines for the National Endowment for the Humanities
Preservation Assistance Grants are now available.  May 15, 2003 is
the receipt deadline for projects that would begin no earlier than
January 2004.  Preservation Assistance Grants of up to $5000 help
small and mid-size institutions--libraries, museums, and historical
societies, town and county records offices, archival repositories,
community colleges, and underserved departments and units within
colleges and universities and other larger institutions--improve
their ability to preserve and care for their humanities collections.
Institutions may request support for the following activities: 1)
General preservation assessments that will help an institution
identify its overall preservation needs and develop a long-range,
prioritized preservation plan; 2) Consultations with preservation
professionals to address a specific preservation issue, need, or
problem; 3) Attendance at preservation workshops; and 4) Purchase of
lstorage furniture, preservation supplies, and environmental
monitoring equipment.

The guidelines may be downloaded from
