A major initiative of the Site Preservation program provides grants of up to $25,000 to innovative projects that preserve archaeological sites through conservation efforts and also emphasize outreach, education, and community involvement. Grant winners work to preserve sites and create a positive impact on the local community, students, and the discipline of archaeology as a whole. The AIA also works with grant recipients to raise public awareness of the significance of their archaeological sites and the threats they face, to implement and disseminate best practices, and to encourage increased support for preservation efforts.
The most recent Site Preservation Grant was awarded to a preservation and outreach project at Narce, Italy.
