Save America's Treasures Grants


The Federal Save America’s Treasures grants program began in 1999 to mark the beginning of the new millennium. The program helps preserve nationally significant historic properties and collections that convey our nation’s rich heritage to future generations of Americans. The grants are administered by the National Park Service in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. Private partners, including the National Trust for Historic Preservation, help to raise non-Federal funds to match the Federal grants appropriated by Congress to preserve many nationally significant historic properties and museum collections.  

NPS & AAF partners in Preservation!
NPS is pleased to announce the official partnership agreement signed in 2014 with the American Architectural Foundation to promote Save America’s Treasures.

The program awarded $315,152,000 to 1,287 grants in total. Although not currently funded the program is authorized in legislation. Grants were awarded to Federal, state, local, and tribal government entities, and non-profit organizations through a competitive matching-grant program.
