Administered by the National Park Service in collaboration with the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, Save America’s Treasures is an annual grant program designed to provide critical investments in the preservation of the nation’s most significant and endangered cultural treasures.
Grants are available for preservation and/or conservation work on nationally significant intellectual and cultural artifacts and historic structures and sites. Intellectual and cultural artifacts include objects, collections, documents, sculpture, and works of art. Historic structures and sites include historic districts, lots, buildings, structures, and objects.
Grants are awarded to federal, state, local, and tribal government entities as well as and nonprofit organizations through a competitive matching-grant program. For FY 2010, NPS has approximately $14 million in total funding to award through the Save America’s Treasures program.
