Does your institution hold unprocessed archival papers, at-risk image collections in need of digitization, or other historical records in need of preservation? The Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board (USHRAB) has funding opportunities!
Grants from the USHRAB are accessible to government (excluding Federal) and non-profit institutions that care for documentary collections of historical and enduring value. Funding of up to $7,500 is available for projects designed to increase access to and preservation of historical records. Projects are selected by the Board on a competitive basis. Awards 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. Funds are intended for short-term projects. Work cannot begin prior to July 15, 2020 and must be completed by June 26, 2021.
Applications are required and must be received by June 4th. We highly encourage applicants to take advantage of an optional draft deadline of April 3.
Guidelines, applications, and additional forms are available at https://archives.utah.gov/USHRAB/grants.html. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
