National Park Service – Preservation Technology and Training Grants
Country: United States
Deadline: February 28
Preservation Technology and Training Grants (PTT Grants) are intended to create better tools, better materials, and better approaches to conserving buildings, landscapes, sites, and collections. The PTT Grants are administered by the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT), the National Park Service’s innovation center for the preservation community. The competitive grants program will provide funding to federal agencies, states, tribes, local governments, and non-profit organizations. PTT Grants will support the following activities:
• Innovative research that develops new technologies or adapts existing technologies to preserve cultural resources (typically $20,000)
• Specialized workshops or symposia that identify and address technical preservation needs (typically $15,000 to $20,000)
• 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 $20,000. The actual grant award amount is dependent on the scope of the proposed activity. NCPTT does not fund “brick and mortar” grants.
