      Reminder for Smaller Institutions:
      Deadline is May 15, 2007 for
      NEH 2007 PRESERVATION ASSISTANCE GRANTS

      (Don't Forget to Register Early with Grants.gov)

      ************ ********* ********* ********* *********
      WHAT IS THE NEH PRESERVATION ASSISTANCE GRANT PROGRAM?

      The National Endowment For The Humanities (NEH) awards grants of up
      to $5,000 on a non-matching basis to support the preservation of materials
      in collections- holding organizations. A focus of the program is to promote
      preservation planning and preservation training within the country's smaller
      institutions.

      [Note: REGISTER NOW with Grants.gov. All institutions applying for an NEH
      grant must submit their applications ONLY electronically via Grants.gov, the
      government-wide grants portal. For more information, go to:
      http://www.neh. gov/grants/ grantsgov/ about.html]

      THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITIES CAN BE SUPPORTED through a Preservation Assistance
      Grant:

      General preservation and conservation surveys conducted by a preservation
      professional, designed to help an institution identify its preservation
      needs and develop a long-range preservation plan to address them; attendance
      at preservation workshops and training programs; and consultations with
      preservation professionals to develop a plan to address a specific
      preservation problem.

      WHO SHOULD APPLY?

      NEH created this program in an effort to extend its support to smaller
      institutions, such as libraries, museums, historical societies, archival
      repositories, town and county records offices, and underserved departments
      and units within colleges and universities.

      HOW CAN I APPLY?

      2007 grant application and guidelines are available at NEH's Web
      site,www.neh. gov. Applicants will be asked to describe in detail the nature
      and significance of their collection. The PAG guidelines page has a very
      helpful "Consult the Help" section with frequently asked questions, sample
      projects, and sample narratives. You can also call NEH to discuss your
      project, at 202-606-8570.
