The U.S Embassy Cairo Cultural Affairs Office is currently accepting project applications for the U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) 2019 Small Grants Competition.

Funding Areas

The AFCP Small Grants Competition supports the preservation of cultural sites, cultural objects and collections, and forms of traditional cultural expression. Appropriate project activities may include:

  • In the case of cultural sites: conservation of an ancient or historic building, preservation of an archaeological site, or documentation of cultural sites in a region for preservation purposes.
  • In the case of cultural objects and collections: conservation treatment for an object or collection of objects from a museum, site, or similar institution—that include, but are not limited to, archaeological and ethnographic objects, paintings, sculpture, manuscripts, and general museum conservation needs; needs assessment of a collection with respect to its condition and strategies for improving its state of conservation; inventory of a collection for conservation and protection purposes; the creation of safe environments for storage or display of collections; or specialized training in the care and preservation of collections.
  • In the case of forms of traditional cultural expression: documentation and audiovisual recording of traditional music, indigenous languages and dance forms for broad dissemination as the means of teaching and further preserving them, or support for training in the preservation of traditional applied arts or crafts in danger of extinction.

AFCP small grants range from a floor of $10,000 to a maximum of $200,000 per project.

  • U.S. treaty or bilateral agreement obligations, such as cultural property agreements.

  • Disaster risk reduction for cultural heritage in disaster-prone areas.
  • Post-disaster cultural heritage recovery.
