Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) Program
The Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) program provides small and mid-sized museums with partial funding toward a general conservation assessment. The assessment is a study of all of the institution's collections, buildings, and building systems, as well as its policies and procedures relating to collections care. Participants who complete the program receive an assessment report with prioritized recommendations to improve collections care. CAP is often a first step for small institutions that wish to improve the condition of their collections.
Current program participants can access program materials by logging in to the CAP Participant Portal.
We anticipate that applications for the 2021 program will open November 1, 2020, with a deadline of February 1, 2021.
