Conservation Assessment Program

From: Sonia Dingilian <sdingilian>
Date: Wednesday, November 4, 1998
The Conservation Assessment Program (CAP) is funded by the Institute
of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and administered by Heritage
Preservation (formerly the National Institute for the Conservation
of Cultural Property).  CAP provides matching grants for a general
conservation assessment or survey of a museum's collections,
environmental conditions and sites.  Conservation priorities are
identified by professional conservators who spend two days on-site
and three days writing a report.  Reports produced by conservators
help museums develop strategies for improved collections care and
provide a tool for long-range planning and fund-raising.

CAP is designed to serve museums with small- to medium-sized
collections and sites that can be surveyed in two days. 1999 CAP
applications were mailed on October 9, 1998. Since CAP grants are
awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, museums are advised to
submit their application materials as soon as possible. Applications
must be postmarked by December 4, 1998. The application may be
downloaded from Heritage Preservation's web site at  To receive a hard copy of the
application or for more information, please contact
