The National Park Service (NPS) has announced the availability of $14 million in Save America’s Treasures (SAT) Grants funding for fiscal year 2010. Applications for the grants are due by May 21, 2010.
The SAT program awards competitive, matching grants to federal, state, local, and tribal government entities, and nonprofit organizations for preservation and/or conservation work on nationally significant historic properties and collections. Applications and more information are available on the NPS website.
SAT is administered in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers, and the National Association of Tribal Historic Preservation Officers.
The Obama administration proposed the elimination of the Saving America’s Treasures and Preserve America programs at the NPS in its fiscal year 2011 budget request to Congress.
