Historic Preservation Fund Grants Available to Preserve
Intellectual and Cultural Artifacts and Historic
Structures and Sites
Deadline: May 19, 2004
Applications are invited for Federal Save America's Treasures Grants, a program administered by the National Park Service (http://www.nps.gov/ ) in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.
Grants are awarded through a competitive process for preservation and/or conservation work on nationally significant intellectual and cultural artifacts and collections and on nationally significant historic properties. Intellectual and cultural artifacts and collections include artifacts, collections, documents, sculpture, and other works of art. Historic properties include historic districts, buildings, sites, structures, and objects.
Grants require a dollar-for-dollar, non-federal match of cash, donated services, or use of equipment. The grant and the non-federal match must be expended during the grant period (generally two to three years). The minimum grant request for collections projects is $50,000 (federal share), while the minimum for historic property projects is $250,000 (federal share). The maximum grant request for all projects is $1 million (federal share).
Eligible applicants include federal agencies funded by the Department of the Interior and the Related Agencies Appropriations Act; other federal agencies collaborating with a nonprofit partner to preserve the historic properties or collections owned by the federal agency; nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c) organizations; units of state or local government; and federally recognized Indian tribes. Historic properties and collections associated with active religious organizations are also eligible to apply.
See the National Park Service Web site for eligibility information, application instructions, and an application form.
