National Historical Publications And Records Commission
|Category: Arts & Culture
The Commission promotes the preservation and use of Americaís documentary heritage essential to understanding our democracy, history, and culture. Its Electronic Records grant program supports projects leading to sustainable electronic records archives that preserve digital records with enduring historical value. Projects cannot use grant funds to digitize historical records. Projects should develop institutional capacity through program evaluation and planning; create institutional capacity with program start-up support; expand the scope of existing programs; or develop electronic records service providers that can offer reliable preservation services to archives. Program planning projects fund the development of organizational and financial structures and technical requirements. Program start-up grants should be used to implement organizational, financial, and technical structures that sustain electronic records archives. Grants for program expansion will support projects that allow successful programs to face new challenges and to develop new strategies to solve them. Each application is encouraged to include professional development components necessary for the projectís success. City, state, county, or township governments; public and private institutions of higher education; Native American tribal governments; and nonprofits are eligible to apply. Additional information is available on the Web site.
