Partners in Training Initiative, Historic Preservation Education Foundation - Call for Proposals
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Historic Preservation Education Foundation

Website: http://hpef.us/conferences/partners-in-training

HPEF is launching a new initiative, Partners in Training, to further its mission of providing training opportunities on technical topics associated with preservation technology. This initiative has been developed in response to cuts in public funding for preservation training, and seeks to replicate the success HPEF has enjoyed working with other educational institutions and organizations that share its passion for the technical aspects of preservation.

In this initial round of funding for Partners in Training, HPEF is inviting educational institutions and nonprofit organizations to submit training proposals that address specialized topics associated with technical aspects of preservation projects. Applicants should review the HPEF website (www.hpef.us) for information on previous initiatives of the Foundation. Some have been undertaken with non-traditional and cross-disciplinary partners, while others have provided in-depth training on narrowly defined materials or building types.

HPEF’s goals for this inaugural Partners in Training initiative are to:
  • Support technical preservation training and educational efforts for the public sector as well as for educational institutions and non-profit organizations
  • Continue a successful tradition of partnering with educational institutions and non-profit organizations to deliver technical preservation training
  • Continue to provide high-quality and focused symposia and conferences on topics timely to the technical preservation community
  • Leverage HPEF’s experience and organizational stability to support new and unique training opportunities
The applicant’s teaming with secondary organizations, including other public, private and non-profit organizations, is encouraged if this supports the primary goals of the proposal.

The Partnership:
Following a model that has proven successful in past endeavors, HPEF’s contribution will include administrative and initial financial support (seed money to fund initial tasks, handling of registration and financial functions associated with the event, and assumption of financial risk). Administrative support includes participation in event planning, registration functions, and, as appropriate, assistance in online publication of materials prepared for the event.

The successful applicant will assume all other responsibilities including marketing; coordination of onsite aspects associated with the venue; project budget; and staffing, including at event to meet onsite needs.

Grant Stipulations:
HPEF will award grant(s) ranging from $5,000 – $20,000, representing a maximum of 50% of the total project cost.

The proposed project must be implemented in 2014 or 2015.

Qualifications:
  1. Proposed project must represent an important or emerging technical preservation topic not fully addressed by others.
  2. Proposed project must be unique from ongoing programs (ex., annual meetings of organization). The applicant’s and organization’s previous successful experience planning and implementing events of similar structure and scale must be demonstrated.
  3. The person who will assume the primary role in design and implementation of the initiative must be identified and qualified (Initiative Chair).
  4. The commitment of the primary institution or organization and any key partners must be demonstrated.
  5. Proposed budget must be reasonable and realistic.
  6. Preference will be given to projects that are matched with public funds.
