Grant Opportunity – NYSCA/GHHN Conservation Treatment Grant Program

The Conservation Treatment Grant program is a partnership of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and Greater Hudson Heritage Network (GHHN) that provides support for treatment procedures by professional conservators to aid in stabilizing and preserving objects in collections of museums, historical, and cultural organizations in New York State. 

Support is available for conservation treatment of paintings, works on paper (including individual drawings, watercolors, prints or photographs), textiles (including costumes, domestic textiles, and upholstery), furniture, frames, sculpture, historical, ethnographic, and decorative objects.
 
Frames are an integral part of a painting and applicants must address frame condition and treatment when applying for painting conservation. Support is also available for treatment costs for supports, stands, and mounts that are integral to the treatment of the object.
 
Grants will support in-state transportation costs for the objects and/or the conservators, and the cost of insurance for the work(s) to be treated.

Requests for treatment of outdoor sculpture must include the description of an on-going maintenance program already in existence, or one to be implemented, at your institution. An engineer’s report may be required for some sculptures.

Individual grant awards will not exceed $7,500. No match is required. 

Applications are accepted via online portal located on our website – the portal will remain open until 11:59 PM on Wednesday, June 1, 2022. You may log in and work on your application at any point during this time period. 
 
To access the online portal, and for more information on the application process, grant guidelines, and listings of past grantees please visit our website:
