The AFCP Large Grants Program gives top priority to project activities that are appropriate and in keeping with international cultural heritage preservation standards. An appropriate preservation activity is one that protects the values of the site, object or collection, or form of traditional cultural expression as they are understood by stakeholders. Stakeholders may include national, regional, or local cultural authorities; the local community; and others with vested interests in the site and the outcome of a project.

Proposals for projects that directly support one or more of the following criteria will receive additional consideration in FY 2019:

  • U.S. treaty or bilateral agreement obligations, such as cultural property protection agreements
  • U.S. Embassy Integrated Country Strategy (ICS) goals (i.e. Goal 2: Equitable inclusive economic growth, job creation, and open markets, especially to provide opportunities to young people)
  • Disaster risk reduction for cultural heritage in seismically active and other disaster-prone areas
  • Post-disaster cultural heritage recovery
  • Preservation of inscribed World Heritage sites

Project Activities

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, usually appropriate only with fine arts, decorative arts, and historic buildings)

Eligibility Criteria

  • Eligible project applicants are defined as reputable and accountable non-commercial entities, such as non-governmental organizations, museums, ministries of culture, or similar institutions and organizations, including U.S.-based organizations subject to Section 501(c)(3) of the tax code, that are able to demonstrate the requisite experience and capacity to manage large-scale multi-year projects to preserve cultural heritage. Applicants should be able to receive support from the U.S. Government and AFCP grants in accordance with AFCP program policies.
  • Applicants who have previously received AFCP awards must have fulfilled all reporting requirements before applying for new awards. Failure to do so may adversely affect eligibility for support from AFCP in 2019.
