National Park Service: Save America’s Treasures
The National Park Service, in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), supports the preservation of nationally significant historic properties and collections through the Save America’s Treasures program. The Save America’s Treasures program is funded through the Historic Preservation Fund using revenue from Outer Continental Shelf oil releases, and requires dollar-for-dollar private matching funds.
All projects must be nationally significant; meaning listed as National Historic Landmarks or at the national level of significance in the National Register of Historic Places either individually or as contributing to a listed historic district, or a case made for a collection’s national significance.
Amount: $4,800,000 is available for 5-7 awards. Awards are anticipated to range between $125,000-$500,000 each.
Eligibility: Applicants may be:
- Nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c), U.S organizations
- Units of state or local government
- Federally-recognized Indian Tribes, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiian Organizations, as defined by 54 USC § 300300
