National Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act Program to Host Webinar on FY 2012 Grants

What: Section 10 of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to make grants to museums, Indian tribes, and Native Hawaiian organizations for the purposes of assisting in consultation, documentation, and repatriation of Native American "cultural items", including human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony.

The National NAGPRA Program offers two types of grants, Consultation & Documentation Grants and Repatriation Grants. Consultation & Documentation Grants are project-based grants that support the efforts of eligible applicants to consult and document NAGPRA-related human remains and cultural items. Consultation & Documentation grants are competitive awards for up to $90,000.

Repatriation grants are non-competitive awards for up to $15,000. These project-based awards are intended to defray costs associated with packaging, transportation, contamination removal, reburial, and/or storage of NAGPRA-related human remains and/or cultural items.

The webinar will provide information on the NAGPRA Grants program, review the FY 2012 Consultation & Documentation grant application and provide information about new resources available on the NAGRPA website to assist with proposal development.

When: December 6, 2011 2:00PM-4:00PM Eastern Daylight Time

Fee: This is a free webinar!
