>Grant Opportunity – NEH Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections


Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections (SCHC) helps cultural institutions meet the complex challenge of preserving large and diverse holdings of humanities materials for future generations by supporting preventive conservation measures that mitigate deterioration and prolong the useful life of collections.

Both planning and implementation grants will be awarded. The maximum award for planning grants is $40,000, for up to two years. Grants can be made for up to five years for implementation projects, with a maximum award of $400,000. Successful applicants will be awarded a grant in outright funds, federal matching funds, or a combination of the two, depending on the applicant’s preference and the availability of NEH funds.
