This webinar is for those who have identified a PAG-eligible project, and want to learn strategies for preparing a strong application.

About the Grant:
The National Endowment for the Humanities Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions help small and mid-sized cultural heritage institutions improve their ability to preserve and care for their humanities collections. Awards of up to $6000 support preservation related collection assessments, consultations, training and workshops, and institutional and collaborative disaster and emergency planning. Preservation Assistance Grants also support education and training in best practices for sustaining digital collections, standards for digital preservation, and the care and handling of collections during digitization.

The 2012 guidelines for Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions will be available at:
NEH Preservation Grant Guidelines
You will also find sample project descriptions, sample narratives, and a list of frequently asked questions.
The deadline for applications is May 1, 2012.
