Writing Your Preservation Assistance Grant
Guidance to help you write a successful application.
February 21 or 23, 2018
Preservation Assistance Grants (PAG) from the National Endowment for the Humanities help small and mid-sized institutions—such as libraries, museums, historical societies, archival repositories, cultural organizations, town and county records offices, and colleges and universities—improve their ability to preserve and care for their significant humanities collections.
These may include 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.
Why Apply for the NEH Preservation Assistance Grant?
1. PAG funding can jumpstart your preservation program with a Preservation Needs Assessment. Need a roadmap? Start here!
2. Develop your staff and volunteer skills – by using grant funds to attend existing trainings or to develop a custom on-site workshop with an expert.
3. Get your digital collections on the right track with a PAG-funded digital preservation consultation.
4. A PAG-funded Preservation Needs Assessment can lay the groundwork for more funding in the future.
5. The easy five-page grant application is a great way for small organizations to gain confidence in grant writing.
