BACKGROUND (Brief Summary)
The National Endowment for the Humanities solicited applications for the Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections (SCHC) program. The SCHC program helps cultural institutions meet the complex challenge of preserving large and diverse holdings of humanities materials for future generations by supporting sustainable conservation measures that mitigate deterioration, prolong the useful life of collections, and strengthen institutional resilience (i.e., the ability to anticipate and respond to disasters resulting from natural or human activity).

The City of Texas City, Texas City Museum has applied for the Implementation Level I category which is intended to address discrete preservation challenges that are identified through general preservation assessments at small to mid-sized institutions. Level I awards support projects that have undertaken a general preservation assessment or other targeted collections assessment, identified preservation challenges and priorities, and are ready to implement small-scale improvements to environmental conditions and other sustainable conservation measures.

This grant, if awarded, will not require any matching funds from the City.
It is the recommendation of the Grants Administrator that the approval of the submission of this application is ratified by the Commission.
