U.S. Embassy in Burma: AFCP 2019 Large Grants Competition

Deadline: 13 December 2018

U.S. Embassy Rangoon is accepting project proposals for the U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP)-2019 Large Grants Competition.

Funding Areas

The AFCP Large Grants Program supports the preservation of major ancient archaeological sites, historic buildings and monuments, and major museum collections that are accessible to the public and protected by law.

Funding Priorities

  • The AFCP Large Grants Program gives top priority to project activities that are appropriate and in keeping with international cultural heritage preservation standards. Appropriate project activities may include:
    • preventive conservation (addressing conditions that damage or threaten the site)
    • stabilization (reducing the physical disturbance [settling, collapse, etc.] of a site)
    • conservation (addressing damage or deterioration to a collection or sites)
    • consolidation (connecting or reconnecting elements of a site)
    • anastylosis (reassembling a site from its original parts)
    • restoration (replacing missing elements to recreate the original appearance of a site)
  • Applications for projects that directly support one or more of the following will receive additional consideration in FY 2019:
    • U.S. treaty or bilateral agreement obligations, such as cultural property agreements
    • U.S. Embassy Integrated Country Strategy (ICS) goals
    • Disaster risk reduction for cultural heritage in disaster-prone areas
    • Post-disaster cultural heritage recovery
    • Preservation of inscribed World Heritage sites

  • Myanmar is one of the eligible countries to participate in the program based on the country’s rank in the 2015 U.N. Human Development Index.
