[ICPR] State Historic Records Board Opens Application Period for Historical Document Preservation and Digitization Grant!
Start Date: 4/15/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/15/2014
Entry Description
INDIANAPOLIS (April 15, 2014) - The Indiana State Historic Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) announces the availability of two grant opportunities, archival assessment and digitization grants. The archival assessment grant allows for institutions to hire a consultant to analyze the conditions of historical records and report recommendations. Digitization grants are available as a means for entities to digitize specific types of records that may currently be at risk. The digitization of these documents will allow citizens and interested parties greater access to these records through preservation and online availability.

The SHRAB is providing grant funds of up to $5,000, requiring a local match in cash or in‐kind of an equal amount of the total project cost. These grants will be available to not‐for‐profit organizations and units of local government in the State of Indiana. Priority will be given to institutions whose records are currently at risk. The grant funds are provided by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission of the National Archives.

“The State Archives and Indiana SHRAB are pleased to provide this opportunity to preserve and make accessible the historic records of Indiana, primarily those at risk of being lost forever,” said Jim Corridan, State Coordinator of the Indiana SHRAB. “This grant could make the difference in successfully completing future research or family history.”

Applications must be received by email or postmarked no later than Friday, May 30, 2014 and may be found online via
