According the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance, the National Endowment for the Humanities is the main agency that oversees the Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collections program which is aimed towards the preservation, creation, and provision of intellectual access to resources held in libraries, museums, archives, historical organizations, and other collections that are essential to research, education and public programming in the field of humanities.

The NHE also supports a vast network of private and nonprofit affiliates, and more importantly, provides generous grants for high-standard humanities projects to cultural institutions, that is; museums, libraries, colleges, universities and the like.

Which is why, in line with the NHE's mission, which is to "serve and strengthen our Republic by promoting excellence in the humanities and conveying the lessons of history to all Americans", they have constituted grants that have and will eventually continue to help institutions sustain and preserve the American heritage.
