The National Center Announces Call for Proposals for 2017 Preservation Technology and Training Grants Program
The Call for Proposals is now available for the 2017 Preservation Technology and Training Grants Program. This program supports innovative projects that develop new tools and technologies to improve the preservation of the nation's historic resources. Pending the availability of funding, the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT), will provide approximately $300,000 to support the following activities:
  • Innovative research that develops new technologies or adapts existing technologies to preserve cultural resources (typically $25,000 to $40,000)
  • Specialized workshops or symposia that identify and address national preservation needs (typically $15,000 to $25,000)
  • How-to videos, mobile applications, podcasts, best practices publications, or webinars that disseminate practical preservation methods or provide better tools for preservation practice (typically $5,000 to $15,000)

The maximum grant award is $40,000. NCPTT does not fund "bricks and mortar" grants.

NCPTT funds projects in archeology, architecture, collections management, engineering, historic landscapes, and materials conservation. In order to focus research efforts, NCPTT requests proposals that advance the application of science and technology to historic preservation in the following areas:
  • Climate Change Impacts
  • Disaster Planning and Response
  • Modeling and Managing Big Data
  • Innovative Techniques for Documentation
  • Protective Coatings and Treatments
  • Other research topics may be considered for funding 
Who may apply?
  • U.S. universities and colleges
  • U.S. non-profit organizations: museums, research laboratories, professional societies and similar organizations in the U.S. that are directly associated with educational or research activity
  • Government agencies in the U.S.: National Park Service and other federal, state, territorial and local government agencies, as well as Hawaiian Natives, Native American and Alaska Native tribes and their Tribal Historic Preservation Offices

Other organizations can participate only as contractors to eligible U.S. partners. Grant funds support only portions of projects that are undertaken or managed directly by U.S. partners and expended in the U.S. and its territories. 

How to apply? 

Applications must be submitted using Grants.gov. Search in Grants.gov for Funding Opportunity #P16AS00579, under Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number 15.923 or 2017 Preservation Technology and Training Grants. 

When is the deadline for submitting proposals?

Applications must be submitted by 11:59pm EDT Thursday, November 3, 2016.  If the project is funded, applicants should expect to be able to begin work around July 2017. 

For more information, please contact NCPTT at 318-356-7444.
