The National Endowment for the Humanities, or the NHE, is an independent federal agency of the United States of America that work towards supporting the humanities through research, education, preservation and public programs.
In keeping with the NHE's effort to conserve the humanities, they have developed the Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections(SCHC)program, which aims to help in tackling the complex challenge of preserving vast and diverse holdings of humanities materials.
The SCHC program offers two kinds of grants, the grants for planning and the grants for implementation.
The planning grants are designed to help institutions develop and assess preventive and conservation strategies, such as site visits, risk assessments, planning sessions, monitoring, testing, modeling, project-specific research, and preliminary designs for the future implementation of approved projects.
The NHE will grant eligible parties up to $40,000 to initially support planning projects, and another $10,000, upon request and pending the recommendation of interdisciplinary planning teams, in order to improve the outcomes of planning grants and to encourage incremental improvements in collection care.
