The Embassy of the United States of America in Peru is pleased to invite institutions in the country to participate in the two calls for the Ambassador’s Fund for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage this year. The projects must be related to the conservation and protection of the cultural heritage of Peru, prioritizing the impact of the project for the economic reactivation of the community and the region, post COVID-19.

This time, the calls are divided into two categories:

Projects for tangible heritage with a support range between US$10,000 and US$500,000.

Projects for intangible heritage with a support range between US$10,000 and US$100,000.

The Ambassador’s Fund for the Preservation of Peru’s Cultural Heritage was established by the United States Congress in 2001 and implemented by the Department of State’s Office of Educational and Cultural Affairs to help developing countries preserve their cultural heritage and demonstrate the respect that the United States has for other cultures.

Thanks to the Ambassador’s Fund, Peru has received more than US $ 3 million to support projects for the conservation of its cultural heritage.

All proposals must be sent to the email LimaPDGrants@state.gov until Monday, November 22, 2021. The Embassy of the United States will make a pre-selection of the projects received and will request additional information only to those projects that go to the next phase .

The final results will be announced in August 2022 via email and through the Embassy social media sites.
