Save America's Treasures

Save America’s Treasures grants are available for preservation and/or conservation work on nationally significant intellectual and cultural artifacts and collections and on nationally significant historic properties.

Grants are awarded by a competitive process and require a dollar-for-dollar,


non-Federal match, which can be cash, donated services, or use of equipment.

The grant and the non-Federal match must be expended during the grant period, generally 2 to 3 years, to execute the project.

The minimum grant request for collections projects is $25,000 Federal share; the minimum grant request for historic property projects is $125,000 Federal share.

The maximum grant request for all projects is $700,000 Federal share.

The Save America’s Treasures Grants Selection Panel may, at its discretion, award less than the minimum grant request.
