National Park Service Awards Grants to Support Historic Preservation through Technology
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Park Service

Washington – National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis today announced the award of $195,200 in grants from the National Center for Preservation Technology & Training to assist with projects using science and technology for historic preservation.  A total of five grants, ranging from $38,500 to $40,000, were awarded for projects that develop new technologies or adapt existing technologies to preserve our nation’s cultural resources.  

Among the projects receiving grants this year are efforts to better understand the range of climate change impacts on archeological sites and to investigate radiant energy barriers, a type of insulation, as a means of improving energy efficiency in older homes. 

“Harnessing new technologies to preserve our nation’s historic resources is an important part of the National Park Service’s mission to protect and share the special places that Americans have entrusted to us,” Director Jarvis said.  “We are pleased to provide assistance for these innovative projects that are bringing the best skills and technology of the present to preserve the treasures of the past.” 

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.
