State Historical Records Advisory Boards assist the National Historical Publications and Records Commission in carrying out its mission and extending its reach through state-based activities. The NHPRC is revising its state board grants program to focus on public programming that results in enhanced online access to records, increased public understanding and use of archives, and collaborative approaches to statewide services or problem solving among multiple repositories or parties. We invite your comments and suggestions for this revised program.
The Commission will award grants to state boards to:
- Provide educational and outreach programs, workshops, and other activities that enhance citizen and student engagement with historical records.
- Operate state-based regrant and scholarship programs that advance access to historical records.
- Collaborate on projects with other organizations to address common problems or shared opportunities within a state or among a consortium of state archives.
- Hold or participate in meetings and public forums on statewide or national archival issues.
The NHPRC expects to award approximately 20 grants in this program. The total amount allocated for this program is up to $700,000. Grants begin no earlier than TO BE DETERMINED (TBD).
Proposed application deadlines: DRAFT TBD; FINAL TBD.
Please read the attached State Board Programming Grants DRAFT announcement [PDF]. We welcome public comments on this draft by March 31, 2014.
