Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation Large Grant Competition
The US Embassy is launching the AFCP LARGE GRANTS PROGRAM. It supports the preservation of major ancient archaeological sites, historic buildings and monuments, and museum collections that are accessible to the public and protected by law in the host country.
The AFCP, established by the U.S. Congress in 2001 to assist countries in preserving their cultural heritage, is the only U.S. Government program providing direct grant support to heritage preservation. The AFCP emphasizes the United States’ commitment to preserving the world’s cultural heritage and affirms that preservation is an integral component of U.S. foreign relations.
Opportunity Focus Areas:
- Preventive conservation (addressing conditions that damage or threaten the site)
- Stabilization (reducing the physical disturbance of a site)
- Conservation (addressing damage or deterioration to a collection or sites)
