The National Endowment for the Humanities has published the guidelines for Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions Program.
The grant application deadline is May 5, 2015. Funded projects would begin January 2016.
The National Endowment for the Humanities Preservation Assistance Grants help small and mid-sized cultural heritage institutions such as libraries, museums, historical societies, archival repositories, town and county records offices, and colleges and universities improve their ability to preserve and care for their humanities collections. Awards of up to $6000 support preservation related collection assessments, consultations, and institutional and collaborative disaster and emergency planning. Preservation Assistance Grants also support education and training in best practices for sustaining digital collections, standards for digital preservation, and the care and handling of collections during digitization. Institutions may request funds for a preservation assessment of digital collections. NEH does not fund digitization or the development of digital programs in this grant category.
