Awards are made to projects that exemplify creativity and professional vision resulting in a contribution to the preservation and interpretation of the historic scene, material culture and diversity of the region.

Please read the guidelines and instructions carefully before submitting a nomination, as they have changed.  The Awards Committee may give more than one award or no award in any category. Incomplete nominations will not be judged. Decision of the Awards Committee is final.

Awards will be presented at Greater Hudson’s 2019 Annual Conference on September 24, 2019 at the Bear Mountain Inn.

2018 Conservation Treatment Grant Awardees have a requirement to prepare a final report on the conservation paid for with your 2018 grant.  Please note, our final report submission process is paperless. ​If you are applying to the 2019 NYSCA/GHHN Conservation Treatment Grant program, earliest receipt of your 2018 final report would be appreciated but must be received no later than June 3, 2019.

Final Report Deadlines:
If you have applied for the 2019 Conservation Treatment Grant Program, your 2018 final report must be received by June 3, 2019.

If you have not applied for the 2018 Conservation Treatment Grant Program, your 2018 final report must be received by June 30, 2019. 

You must notify GHHN by May 1, 2019 if you do not anticipate spending all your awarded funds. Any unspent funds must be received by GHHN by June 3, 2019.

Though our process is now paperless, many of the components from the old final report still remain. Some parts of the final report will be filled out in fields in the portal, and other parts of the final report will now need to be uploaded as PDF files – the conservator’s treatment report, for example. Regardless of whether or not you will be filling in fields directly or uploading documents, we highly recommend that you compose your answers offline and copy/paste them into the online form so that you have your work backed up if there is a technical issue. Please note, questions with fillable fields will not accept formatting such as bulleted lists or boldface or italics. This formatting is allowable in PDF files that you upload.
