Closing Date: Oct 3,2011:

The purpose of the Conservation Project Support (CPS) grants program is to help safeguard the collections housed in the nation�s museums so that current and future generations can gain access to and learn from the rich artistic, cultural, and scientific heritage they represent. To achieve this purpose, we award grants to help you identify your conservation needs and priorities and ensure the safekeeping of your collections by implementing sound conservation practices. Since the program�s inception in 1984, we have awarded 3,383 CPS grants to all types and sizes of museums that care for a very broad range of collections, including art, history, natural history, anthropology, living plants, and living animals. We support a holistic approach to conservation and have designed the CPS program to assist you in developing progressive, institution-wide approaches to caring for nonliving and living collections. CPS grants may fund surveys, environmental improvements, treatment, and training. The full range of conservation opportunities we support through this program can provide a roadmap to guide your collections care through which you contribute public value to your community.
