News from the New Orleans Preservation Coalition

Greetings from the NOPC!

Happy Carnival! We hope you've had a great start to 2019 and a king cake-filled Mardi Gras thus far. We've been busy behind the scenes and we wanted to update you with some announcements and other useful information.


More Resources available!

Visit our updated Resources webpage to find helpful information about disaster preparedness and mitigating risk. You and your organization may benefit from tips, online guides, free webinars and other information whether you are a small non-profit arts organization, a small museum, or a large academic research institution.

We hope to continue to add to this page, so if you have suggestions about information you need, let us know! Email us at

We are now a registered 501(c)3


At the close of 2018 we were approved as a registered non-profit in the state of Louisiana. This will help us be able to apply for local, state, and federal grants, and aid in our long term sustainability as an organization.

Membership--join the krewe!


Soon we will be offering membership to the New Orleans Preservation Coalition and Alliance for Response. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for announcements about signing up and to learn how it benefits you and your organization.

Preservation assessment grants and free webinars

  • If you are an organization with humanities collections available to the public on a regular basis (including small, local museums!), you can apply for grants from the CCAHA to perform a preservation needs assessment or risk assessment for your organization.

  • The Performing Arts Readiness Project is offering free webinars all of February and March about disaster preparedness for performance and arts organizations. Read more here for the schedule and how to sign up or visit
