Grant Proposal Writing for Preservation and Digitization Projects
Cleveland Public Library
17133 Lake Shore Blvd
Cleveland OH 44110
April 22, 2004
9 am - 5 pm

The Intermuseum Conservation Association is co-sponsoring with the
Ohio Preservation Council a daylong workshop focusing on preparing
for and writing grants for digitization and/or preservation
projects.  Since most digitization and preservation grants are
funded through the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the
Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and the National
Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the session
is based upon those particular granting entities' requirements.
Developing proposals for state, local and foundation funding sources
will also be addressed.  The workshop includes matching your
institution's project with the appropriate funding agency and
preparing to write a proposal.  The majority of the day is spent
covering the elements of a grant proposal and practicing writing
those elements. This workshop will focus on preparing NEH
Preservation Assistance Grants, due in mid-May 2004.  In addition,
this session will allow participants to review and discuss a grant

Outcomes:  The ability to properly choose and prepare a grant
proposal including:

    *   Evaluating appropriate funding sources
    *   Project preparation
    *   Hands-on practice in preparing a proposal
