NEH grants for sustainable preservation--addendum

From: Laura Word <lword<-at->
Date: Wednesday, October 23, 2013
December 12, 2013 is the new deadline for applications to the
National Endowment for the Humanities' Sustaining Cultural Heritage
Collections program. U.S. nonprofit institutions with humanities
collections may apply for planning and implementation projects that
focus on managing relative humidity, temperature, light, and
pollutants in collection spaces; providing protective storage
enclosures and systems for collections; and safeguarding collections
from theft and from natural and man-made disasters. The grant
program encourages sustainable strategies that balance preservation
goals, costs, and environmental impact.

NEH encourages applicants to discuss project ideas with program
officers. Draft proposals are also still being accepted.  Contact us
by email to preservation<-at->neh<.>gov or call 202-606-8570.

Guidelines, FAQs, and sample narratives from successful applications
are on the NEH Web site:
