Condition Assessment for Preservation (CAP) Program
The CAP program was created by Heritage Preservation in 1990 to assist small and medium-sized museums and cultural heritage institutions with grants towards assessing the condition of their collections, termed a "general condition assessment." The program still exists and is now led by the American Institute for Conservation (AIC) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). To learn more about the program today or to apply, visit AIC's website here.
