The Site Preservation Program provides Site Preservation Grants and the Award for Best Practices in Site Preservation to innovative projects that preserve archaeological sites through conservation efforts while emphasizing outreach, education, and community involvement. Grant winners work to preserve sites and create a positive impact on the local community and the discipline of archaeology as a whole. The AIA works with grant recipients to raise public awareness of the significance of their archaeological site and the threats they face, to implement and disseminate best practices, and to encourage increased support for the preservation of our shared cultural heritage.
The AIA is North America's largest and oldest nonprofit organization dedicated to archaeology. The Institute advances awareness, education, fieldwork, preservation, publication, and research of archaeological sites and cultural heritage throughout the world. Your contribution makes a difference.
