The Northeast Document Conservation Center received a $28,400 grant earlier this month. 

The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) works to preserve documents such as maps, books, photographers, art, and rare audio recordings around Massachusetts. 

The organization serves individuals, libraries, museums, archives, historical societies, and art organizations to preserve culturally significant documents across the Massachusetts.

The NEDCC was founded in 1973. Today, the center's services include conservation, digitization, and audio preservation.  

The Massachusetts Archives, the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum, the State Library of Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Institute of Technolgoy (MIT), the Andover Historical Society, South Church of Andover, and Phillips Academy of Andover all use the NEDCC as a resource.

The Massachusetts Cultural Councill (MCC) gave the NEDCC, located at 100 Brickstone Square, the grant through the Cultural Investment Portfolio program. The program gives grants to groups that support and create public programs in the arts, sciences, and humanities around the state, and the grant will help fund the NEDCC's work.

The Massachusetts Cultural Council issues funding to every town and city across the state in an effort to encourage education, appreciation, and community participation in the arts, humanities, and sciences.
