The Conservation Assessment Program (CAP) provides small to
mid-sized museums of all types, from art museums to zoos, with a
general conservation assessment of their collections, environmental
conditions, and facilities. Forms for applying to CAP are available
at <URL:>

The postmark deadline for submitting applications is December 1,

Program participants may start their assessments as early as January
1, 2010, making it possible for museums to get feedback on their
collections and historic structures without delay. For more
information, call 202-233-0800 or email cap<-at->heritagepreservation<.>org

While visiting CAP's Web site, click on the cake to see the new
feature "Twenty Years of Conservation Improvements through CAP." The
feature celebrates CAP's twentieth anniversary by showcasing one
museum from each year in the twenty year history of CAP. Each
museum's story demonstrates how the staff has used their CAP report
recommendations to raise awareness of the importance of conservation
at their institutions, improve collections care, and raise funds.
