Did you want to participate in the Cultural Emergency Resource Coalition's facilitated disaster planning program, but the timing just didn't work out for you? Consider applying for an NEH Preservation Assistance Grant for Smaller Institutions!
Deadline: May 3, 2016 (for projects starting no sooner than January 2017)
Amount: Up to $6,000 (no match required!)
For this round NEH is particularly interested in projects that address disaster planning. If your organization is interested in hiring a consultant to help walk you through CERC's process for writing your own disaster plan, we can help you determine your needs, identify a consultant and develop a budget for a grant application.
Eligibility: Applicants must
- care for and have custody of the humanities collections that are the focus of the application;
- have at least one staff member or the full-time equivalent, whether paid or unpaid; and
- make their collections open and available for the purpose of education, research, and/or public programming, as evidenced by the number of days on which the institution is open to the public, the capacity to support access and use, and the availability of staff for this purpose.
