Conservation Assessment Program

From: Sara Gonzales <sgonzales<-a>
Date: Friday, November 14, 2008
Deadline Extended for the 2009 Conservation Assessment Program

Funding is still available for the 2009 Conservation Assessment
Program (CAP). Given the difficult economy, some museums may need
additional time to focus on their application so the CAP postmark
deadline has been extended to Monday, December 15, 2008.

CAP provides small to mid-sized museums of all types, from art
museums to historical museums to zoos, with a general conservation
assessment of their collections, environmental conditions, and
facilities. If your museum is facing challenging financial times,
participating in CAP can help:

    *   prioritize collections care tasks so you can allocate
        resources wisely

    *   document your needs so that you can make a stronger case to

    *   provide advice on additional sources of support for
        conservation and preservation

Starting this year, CAP program participants may start their
assessments within a month of applying, making it possible for
museums to get feedback on their collections and historic structures
without delay.

Forms for applying to CAP are available at


For more information, call 202-233-0800 or email

CAP is administered by Heritage Preservation through a cooperative
agreement with the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
