Washington – National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis today announced the award of $195,000 in grants from the National Center for Preservation Technology & Training to assist with projects using science and technology for historic preservation.
“These innovative projects are developing new technologies or adapt existing technology to preserve our nation’s historic cultural resources,” said Director Jarvis. “We are pleased to provide assistance for these programs that are bringing the best skills and technology of the present to preserve the treasures of the past.”
The eight grants range from $8,000 to $25,000 for projects to better understand the range of climate change impacts on cultural landscapes, and the creation of a community-driven online project highlighting diverse Asian Pacific Islander historic resources throughout the country.
Since 1994, the National Park Service’s National Center for Preservation Technology and Training in Natchitoches, Louisiana has funded science and technology projects in historic preservation. The center strives to create new technologies and training opportunities to preserve prehistoric and historic resources throughout the United States.
