These grants help small and mid-sized cultural heritage institutions such as libraries, museums, historical societies, archival repositories and colleges and universities improve their ability to preserve and care for their humanities collections. These may include special collections of books and journals, archives and manuscripts, prints and photographs, moving images, sound recordings, architectural and cartographic records, decorative and fine art objects, textiles, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts, furniture, historical objects, and digital materials. Awards of up to $6,000 support preservation related collection assessments, consultations, purchase of preservation supplies and equipment, training and workshops, and institutional and collaborative disaster and emergency planning.
Small and mid-sized institutions that have never received an NEH grant are encouraged to apply. We also have a special encouragement for applications from presidentially designated institutions (Hispanic-serving institutions,Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and Tribal Colleges and Universities), and from Native American tribes with significant humanities collections. Program questions should be directed to NEH’s Division of Preservation and Access at 202-606-8570 firstname.lastname@example.org
