Description: 2016 PTT Grants Program The Preservation Technology and Training (PTT) Grants program provides funding for innovative research that develops new technologies or adapts existing technologies to preserve cultural resources.  Grant recipients undertake innovative research and produce technical products which respond to national needs in the field of historic preservation.  The resulting grant products help increase the longevity of cultural resources.  The Grants program will fund research and training projects.  NCPTT helps preservationists find better tools, better materials, and better approaches to conserving buildings, landscapes, sites, and collections.  It conducts research and testing in its own laboratories, provides cutting edge training around the U.  S.  , and supports research and training projects at universities and nonprofits.  NCPTT pushes the envelope of current preservation practice by exploring advances in science and technology in other fields and applying them to issues in cultural resources management.
