IMLS Seeks Applications for Save America's Treasures Program

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) is seeking
applicants for the Save America's Treasures (SAT) 2009 grant
program. These grants support the preservation and conservation of
nationally significant intellectual and cultural artifacts such as
collections, documents, sculpture, and art, and historic structures
and sites. IMLS partners on the project with the President's
Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, the National Park Service,
the National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Endowment for
the Humanities. The National Trust for Historic Preservation, the
program's principal private partner, raises private matching funds
for projects and provides resources and assistance to a host of SAT
grantees and preservation projects all across the country.

Last year, IMLS and its partners awarded 40 grants, totaling $10.52
million. The grants were used to conserve prehistoric artifacts at
the Utah Museum of Natural History, collections of Historic
Jamestowne and Valley Forge, and the USS Becuna, the only remaining
World War II fleet submarine of its class.

In 2009, grant amounts range from $25,000 to $700,000 for
collections and from $125,000 to $700,000 for historic property and
sites projects. All the awards must be matched 1:1. Eligible
applicants include nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c), U.S. organizations,
units of state or local government, and federally recognized Indian
Tribes. <URL:>, the federal online grantmaking
