WASHINGTON –The National Park Service announced today $324,700 in grants to fund research, training, and online and social media projects that promote innovative uses of technology in the preservation of America’s important cultural and historical resources.
 
“These projects bring the best skills and technology of the present to preserve the treasures of the past for future generations,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “As we celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service, we continue to adapt and improve preservation methods so that these historic places are around for another 100 years.” 

The National Park Service’s National Center for Preservation Technology and Training administers the grants as part of its efforts to create new technologies and training opportunities to preserve historic and cultural resources throughout the United States. Since 1994, the center has awarded more than $9.7 million in grants to fund science and technology-based projects for historic preservation. 

This year’s grant projects incorporate modern technology and techniques to help prepare for disaster management and responding to climate change. Clemson University will create an Infrastructure Risk Index that allows preservation professionals to make risk-aware decisions regarding the preservation and rehabilitation of heritage structures.  The National Trust for Historic Preservation will compare various flood protection methods to develop recommendations for
different types of historic buildings. Media projects include Anacostia Trails Heritage and Preservation Maryland’s development of fifty podcasts on “Using Technology to Protect the Past” in celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.
