National Historical Publications and Records Commission Grants Available

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 September 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021. Applications are open from June 1, 2020 – July 31, 2020 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.
