Preservation Technology Training Grant
The National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT) announces its 2013 Preservation Technology and Training Grants (PTT Grants) call for proposals.

The call outlines in detail how our grants program works. Briefly, we are looking for innovative proposals that develop new technologies or adapt existing technologies to preserve cultural resources. The deadline to submit a proposal to is November 1, 2012. 

PTT Grants have funded recipients like the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum that is conducting innovative research in non-invasive documentation of complex submerged archeological sites located in turbid waters. 

NCPTT supports single year projects. Grants are awarded competitively with the maximum award of $25,000. Preference is given to proposals with a one to one cash or in-kind match, and to proposals that support our research priorities. NCPTT typically receives 40 proposals and funds approximately 10 grants per year.
The 2013 grants will be awarded during the federal fiscal year 2013 (October 1, 2012-September 30, 2013). Grants are funded by annual federal appropriation and are subject to availability of funds.
