Preservation Grants from the North Carolina Preservation Consortium (NCPC) provide modest financial support for projects that promote the preservation of collections in libraries, museums, archives, and historic sites; monuments, memorials, and outdoor art; archaeological sites and collections; and historic and cultural architecture. NCPC institutional members are eligible to apply for a maximum award of $2,000 to support projects including preservation assessments, conservation of collections, purchasing equipment and supplies, education and training, and preservation projects.

This workshop will cover the NCPC Preservation Grants application process as well as provide general instruction on writing successful grants. We are offering this new workshop at a very low cost to encourage attendance. NCPC members and non-members are welcome to attend.

For complete information on the workshop and how to register, visit our Workshops page.
This workshop is scheduled to coincide with the NCPC Annual Conference. Come for the workshop on Thursday, stay for Friday to hear our great lineup of speakers discussing Monuments and Memorials. Register now for both events!
