    NEH Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions (PAG) 

    - NEW Grant Deadline - New Award Levels - New Eligible Grant Activities 

    - Free NEDCC Info Webinar: Thursday, December 13, 2018

    Preservation Assistance Grants (PAG) from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) 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.

    NEDCC highly recommends the NEH PAGs for those small to mid-size organizations that need help getting their preservation program going.


    - New Grant Application Deadline: January 31, 2019

    - New Maximum award amounts:  Up to $10,000 for grants to improve general preservation practices. Institutions in federally declared disaster areas can also use funds for conservation treatment, disaster planning, and recovery and mitigation activities.   Up to $15,000 for grants to support activities related to American history collections that may be a part of the United States 250th anniversary coming up in 2026.
