The Regional Alliance for Preservation provides information and resources on preservation and conservation for cultural institutions and the public throughout the United States.
Since 1999, Save America's Treasures grants have been used to save hundreds of collections and historic structures of national importance. Administered by the National Park Service in partnership with the IMLS, NEH, and NEA, Save America's Treasures offers a very focused opportunity to obtain conservation treatment for important artifacts, collections, documents, monuments and works of art. National significance is a threshold criterion.
FUNDING MAY PROVIDE: Save America's Treasures continues to welcome submissions for conservation treatment. In addition to being of national significance, the collections must be in urgent need of treatment and the total project must show a clear public benefit.
GRANT AMOUNT: Organizations may apply for grants of $25,000 to $700,000. A 1:1 non-Federal match is required. Generally, awards for collections projects tend to be smaller than those for historic structures, falling into the $25,000 to $350,000 range.
DEADLINE: MAY 21, 2010
ELIGIBLE ORGANIZATIONS: Nonprofit organizations, units of state or local government, many federal agencies, and Indian tribes.
