Apply! AFCP Large Grants Competition


The U.S. Embassy in Sudan is seeking project abstracts for AFCP Large Grants Competition to support large scale, partnership-based projects to preserve significant cultural heritage sites in Sudan.

AFCP was established to support countries in preserving their cultural heritage and to demonstrate U.S. respect for other cultures. The AFCP competition for Sudan supports preservation of cultural sites, objects, and museum collections of historical or cultural significance to the cultural heritage of Sudan.

4 January 2018

Floor (Minimum) on Amount of Awards: $200,000 per project.

The AFCP Large Grants Program supports the preservation of major ancient archaeological sites, historic buildings and monuments, and major museum collections that are accessible to the public and protected by law in Sudan. 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)
Special Priorities
-U.S. treaty or bilateral agreement obligations, such as cultural property agreements
-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

Only reputable and accountable noncommercial 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 that they have the requisite experience and capacity to manage projects to preserve cultural heritage can apply. The applicants are also required to have previous large-scale international project experience.
AFCP does not award grants to individuals, commercial entities, or to embassies or past award recipients who have not fulfilled the objectives or reporting requirements of previous AFCP awards.
