    2005-2006 National Endowment for the Humanities
    Grants for Stabilizing Humanities Collections
    Receipt Deadline: October 3, 2005
    (for projects beginning July 2006)

    These grants help museums, libraries, archives, and historical
    organizations preserve their humanities collections through
    support for improved housing and storage, environmental
    conditions, security, lighting, and fire protection.

    Eligible activities include: the purchase of storage furniture
    and the rehousing of humanities collections and materials that
    directly document the collections, such as field notes, site
    maps, or catalog records; the improvement of environmental
    conditions under which collections are stored or exhibited
    (which may encompass the installation of climate control
    systems); and the installation of security, lighting, and fire
    detection and suppression systems.

    Awards are made for up to five years and typically range from
    $30,000 to $700,000. Normally, NEH support will not exceed 50%
    of a project's total costs.

    Application materials and instructions are available at:

    Applicants are encouraged to contact a program officer in the
    Division of Preservation and Access in advance.

    For more information, contact the NEH Division of Preservation
    and Access by e-mail or telephone.
