The Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) Program aims to preserve historic buildings and monuments, archaeological sites, museum collections, and forms of traditional cultural expression, such as indigenous languages and crafts.
Since 2001, the United States, through the AFCP, has spent more than $2 million on 22 projects dedicated to preserving cultural heritage in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Among these projects were the restoration of an Orthodox and a Catholic Church near Mostar; the reconstruction of part of the historic building that houses the Museum of Modern Art of the Republika Srpska; restoration of part of the historic Jewish Cemetery in Sarajevo; and conservation and preservation of the collections of the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
