The Federal Save America’s Treasures grants program began in 1999 and helps preserve nationally significant historic properties and collections that convey our nation’s rich heritage to future generations of Americans. Since 1999, there have been almost 4,000 requests for funding totaling $1.54 billion. In response to these requests, $340,000,000 was awarded to more than 1,300 recipients.
The National Park Service (NPS) has announced availability of $13 million in Historic Preservation Fund grants for the Save America’s Treasures (SAT) program. SAT grants provide preservation and/or conservation assistance to nationally significant historic properties and collections.
Grants will be awarded through a competitive process and require a dollar-for-dollar, non-Federal match, which can be cash or documented in-kind. Grants will be administered by the National Park Service in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this grant program is 15.929.
Applications must be submitted through Grants.gov by December 10, 2019 at 11:59 pm ET. Please note there are two separate applications: one for preservation projects and one for projects involving collections.
