Records preservation mini-grant funding available
Grant funding for historical records preservation projects is available to non-profit organizations and local governments that apply through the Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board (USHRAB).
Funding can be used to help repositories statewide preserve at-risk, historic records and to provide access to important collections. Historical records preservation projects might include purchasing archival supplies to house historical records, processing or organizing historical records, purchasing disaster recovery supplies, or performing a records inventory. Grant funds are not available for digitization projects.
These mini-grants are intended for short-term projects and the maximum award will be $500. All grants require a one-to-one in-kind and/or cash match. Grants must be completed with reimbursement forms submitted by June 15, 2012. Grant funding comes from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHRPC) and is administered by the Utah State Archives and Records Service.
Applications are required and must be received by December 15, 2011. The grant guidelines and application are available at http://archives.utah.gov/USHRAB/forms-menu.html. For further information, contact Janell Tuttle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
