CCAHA Receives NEH Grant for Preservation and Education Training

On December 12, the National Endowment for the Humanities announced awards totaling $14.8 million to support 253 humanities projects nationwide, and we're excited to announce that CCAHA is among this year's awardees.

The Preservation and Education Training Grant helps the staff of cultural institutions obtain the knowledge and skills needed to serve as effective stewards of humanities collections. This grant also supports educational programs that prepare the next generation of conservators and preservation professionals, as well as projects that introduce the staff of cultural institutions to recent improvements in preservation and access practices. 

CCAHA's award will help support our Regional Heritage Stewardship Program (RHSP), which provides education programs, surveys, and regional preservation programs for museums, libraries, and historical organizations in Appalachia, the Deep South, and the Intermountain West.

Changes to NEH Preservation Assistance Grants

The NEH is making changes to one of its most valued grant categories, NEH Preservation Assistance Grants for Smaller Institutions . The deadline has been moved forward to January 31, 2019 (rather than the old mid-May deadline) and there’s a new maximum request limit of $10,000.

Deadline: Thursday, January 31, 2019
