Grant Deadline: December 1, 2015 (New guidelines to be posted soon!)

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) invites applications from nonprofit museums, libraries, archives, and educational institutions in the United States to the Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections program. This grant program supports planning and implementation of sustainable preventive conservation projects that pragmatically balance preservation goals, cost, and environmental impact. All projects should be designed to be as cost effective, energy efficient, and environmentally sensitive as possible.

PLANNING GRANTS of up to $40,000 are available to bring together interdisciplinary teams that will work collaboratively to identify sustainable preventive conservation strategies. A preservation/conservation professional who works with collections must be included on the planning team.

IMPLEMENTATION GRANTS of up to $350,000 are available to manage interior relative humidity and temperature by passive methods; install heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems; install storage systems and rehouse collections; improve security and the protection of collections from fire, flood, and other disasters; and upgrade lighting systems and controls to achieve levels suitable for collections that are energy efficient.
