The North Carolina Preservation Consortium (NCPC) and the North Carolina Museums Council (NCMC) have joined forces to assist collecting institutions affected by disasters.
Purpose and Scope of Grant
To provide funds for collection supplies for institutions affected by disasters declared either by the state (North Carolina) or federal authorities. These include but are not limited to hurricanes, floods, tornados, wildfires, and earthquakes.
Funds will be awarded between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. Applications are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis. Grants will be awarded until funds earmarked for the fiscal year are depleted.
Institutions affected by Federal and State declared disaster events from 2016 to present are eligible to apply for funding. Applications citing global pandemics, including Ebola and Covid-19, will not be accepted.
Applicants must be institutional members of NCPC or NCMC, and must be within the declared North Carolina disaster areas as defined by FEMA or the Governor of North Carolina. Grants are not awarded to individuals.
