The U.S. Embassy Namibia is pleased to announce the start of the U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) 2023 Grants Program. The AFCP Grants Program supports the preservation of archaeological sites, historic buildings and monuments, museum collections, and forms of traditional cultural expression, such as indigenous languages and crafts. Appropriate project activities may include:
a) Anastylosis (reassembling a site from its original parts)
b) Conservation (addressing damage or deterioration to an object or site)
c) Consolidation (connecting or reconnecting elements of an object or site)
d) Documentation (recording in analog or digital format the condition and salient features of an object, site, or tradition)
e) Inventory (listing of objects, sites, or traditions by location, feature, age, or other unifying characteristic or state)
f) Preventive Conservation (addressing conditions that threaten or damage a site, object, collection, or tradition)
g) Restoration (replacing missing elements to recreate the original appearance of an object or site, usually appropriate only with fine arts, decorative arts, and historic buildings)
h) Stabilization (reducing the physical disturbance of an object or site)
Eligible partners are Not-for-profit organizations, including think tanks and civil society/non-governmental organizations; Public and private educational institutions; The AFCP will not award grants to individuals, commercial entities, or past recipients that have not fulfilled the objectives or reporting requirements of previous awards; Public International Organizations and Governmental institutions. The U.S. Embassy is inviting NGOs, museums, or similar institutions to submit concept notes for the Ambassador’s Cultural Preservation Fund (AFCP).
Actions must take place in Namibia.
Grants may range from $10,000-$250,000. They want to fund one grant.
The application deadline is 30 December 2022. The application process involves two rounds: In Round 1, the Embassy will collect project ideas in the form of concept notes. In Round 2, concept notes that will be selected will have to be transformed into full project applications for submission.
