This program enables communities throughout the nation the opportunity to make significant impacts by preserving historically significant properties and collections that tell the stories of the American people.
Washington, DC—The National Park Service, in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the National Endowment for the Arts, is now accepting applications for $26.5 million in matching grants to support the preservation of nationally significant historic properties and collections through the Save America's Treasures program.
The Federal Save America’s Treasures program was established in 1998, and is carried out in partnership with IMLS, NEA, and NEH. Since 1999, Save America’s Treasures has provided over $300 million to more than 1,300 projects to provide preservation and conservation work on nationally significant collections, artifacts, structures and sites. Requiring a dollar-for-dollar private match, these grants have leveraged more than $500 million in private investment and contributed more than 16,000 jobs to local and state economies.
Save America's Treasures grants are awarded through a competitive process and require a dollar-for-dollar, non-Federal match, which can be cash or documented in-kind services. To be considered for this funding, historic properties must be listed as National Historic Landmarks or at the national level of significance in the National Register of Historic Places, and a case must be made for a collection's national significance. For more information about the Save America's Treasures grant program, visit https://www.nps.gov/subjects/historicpreservationfund/save-americas-treasures-grants.htm.
Applications must be submitted through Grants.gov by December 19, 2023 (11:59 pm, Eastern Time). Application instructions and materials for both types of projects are available through Grants.gov.
