The National Endowment for the Humanities is offering Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions
to 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 $5000 support preservation related collection assessments, consultations, and workshops, 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. You will also find sample project descriptions, sample narratives, and a list of frequently asked questions. The deadline for applications is May 15, 2007
Small and mid-sized institutions that have never received an NEH grant are especially encouraged to apply.
