Grant Description

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks proposals to strengthen archives and historical records programs in each of the states and build a national archival network. The Commission awards grants to State Historical Records Advisory Boards to: *Provide statewide archival services, including professional education, public information about records and archival programs, and other activities to implement state plans. *Operate grant programs for eligible archives, manuscript repositories, and other organizations within a state. *Collaborate on projects with other organizations to address common problems or shared opportunities within a state or among a consortium of state archives. *Assess the health of archival and records programs, the conditions of records, and the challenges and opportunities facing historical records keepers and users; and to implement strategies and programs to address pressing archival issues. *Hold meetings and public forums on statewide or national archival issues. *Participate in national archival organizations. The NHPRC expects to award up to 56 grants in this program. Applicants may apply for outright basic grants of up to $20,000 for 18 month projects. Projects to reactivate a State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) and develop or revise the SHRAB's strategic plan should request a maximum of $5,000. Active State Historical Records Advisory Boards may apply for a grant of up to $20,000 to carry out project activities aligned with their board's current strategic plan. In addition, active SHRABs may request in their applications up to $50,000 in additional funds for regrants or collaborative projects. These supplemental funds will be awarded competitively, provided monies are available.
