      WHAT IS IMLS CONSERVATION PROJECT SUPPORT (CPS)?
      The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) awards matching grants
      to help museums identify conservation priorities and perform conservation
      treatment. Grants of up to $150,000 are awarded on a matching basis. The
      match can be met through staff salaries. Additional funds of up to $10,000
      are available for an education component. The Northeast Document
      Conservation Center encourages museums of all types to apply this year to
      take advantage of the increased funding level.

      ACTIVITIES ELIGIBLE FOR CONSERVATION PROJECT SUPPORT INCLUDE:
      * Surveys (general needs assessments, detailed condition reports, or
      environmental studies)
      * Conservation treatment of priority objects or collections
      * Training of staff in collections- care procedures

      WHO CAN APPLY?
      An eligible museum must be tax-exempt; own or care for tangible objects;
      have at least one full-time staff member; and provide museum services to the
      general public on a regular basis.

      HOW CAN I APPLY?
      Register early with Grants.gov. This year, ALL applications must be
      submitted electronically. See the guidelines page for complete instructions.
      If you are a first-time Grants.gov user - register now, it takes time to
      process your registration!

      treatment projects. The staff provides estimates, resumes, and other support
      documents required by IMLS. NEDCC is a premier center for the preservation
      of paper-based collections and photographs. It performs conservation of
      paper, photographs, and books, as well as preservation microfilming,
