Funding for Heritage Efforts


Significant Cultural Heritage Projects Supported
National Park Service: Save America's Treasures Grants
Save America's Treasures Grants, administered by the National Park Service in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, are provided to preserve our country's cultural heritage. Grants are available for preservation and/or conservation work on nationally significant intellectual and cultural artifacts and collections, including documents, sculpture, and other works of art, and on nationally significant historic properties, including historic districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects. The grants require a dollar-for-dollar, non-federal match. The minimum grant request for historic collections projects is $25,000; for historic property projects the minimum grant request is $125,000. Applications must be submitted online by May 22, 2009. Visit their website for program details.
