Does your institution hold unprocessed archival papers, at-risk image collections in need of digitization, or improperly stored records?
The Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board (USHRAB) has funding available for local governments and non-profit cultural heritage institutions that care for documentary collections of historical and enduring value.
Grants of up to $7,500 are available for projects designed to increase access to and preserve historical records. Grants require a one-to-one in-kind and/or cash match and must contain a public access component such as making digitized images available online or creating an online finding aid or index. These funds are intended for short-term projects. Work cannot begin prior to October 15, 2019 and must be completed by June 26, 2020.
Applications are required and must be received by August 30, 2019. We highly encourage applicants to take advantage of an optional draft deadline of August 10.
Guidelines, applications, and additional forms are available at https://archives.utah.gov/USHRAB/index.html
