Prepare for federal, state, regional, and local grant application opportunities. This two-part workshop will teach the essential grant writing strategies to gain funding for preservation and conservation related projects such as: obtaining supplies and materials for the basic re-housing of collections, buying storage upgrades, getting monitoring equipment, receiving a general preservation needs assessment survey, providing staff trainings, and having conservation treatments performed on your art and artifacts.
Learn the prioritized collections care protocol to make sure appropriate projects are developed in a logical progression and with an accompanying funding strategy. Learn how to: conduct an internal review, develop a long-range conservation plan, write an effective proposal, plan and substantiate a budget, and find matching funds. Descriptions and information will be presented on federal grants available from: the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Institute for Museum and Library Services; grants available through state agencies in the Midwest; along with funding from private and corporate regional foundations.
