CHRAB Historical Records Preservation Re-Grant Program
The Colorado Historical Records Advisory Board (CHRAB) is happy to announce this year's funding opportunities from National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) for Re-Grants. Six grants of $5,000 will be awarded to eligible applicants around the State of Colorado. The grant period for these funds is August 1, 2019 - June 1, 2020. Applications are open from April 22, 2019 - June 29, 2019 at 11:59 PM.
Organizations are able to request funding for a wide variety of projects, including digitization, preservation needs, disaster planning, improving accessibility to collections and purchasing supplies. Some special consideration will be given to institutions in smaller, rural areas of the State and a preference will be given to projects with a strong focus on digital accessibility and preservation. Due to NHPRC guidelines, projects for digitizing newspapers will not be eligible for grant funding from CHRAB. For a list of the types of projects eligible for NHPRC funding, please see this link: https://www.archives.gov/nhprc/apply/eligibility.html
Applicants will be required to contribute the 25% matching or in-kind funds. All of the grants will adhere to NHPRC’s general grant guidelines.
