U.S. National Archives and Records Administration: Access to Historical Records – Archival ProjectsDeadline: October 4, 2018
The Access to Historical Records – Archival Projects initiative will support projects that ensure online public discovery and use of historical records collections. There is a special interest in collections of America’s early legal records, such as the records of colonial, territorial, county, and early statehood and tribal proceedings that document the evolution of the nation’s legal history.
All types of historical records are eligible, including documents, photographs, born-digital records, and analog audio and moving images. Projects may preserve and process historical records to:
- Create new online Finding Aids to collections
- Digitize historical records collections and make them freely available online
Applicant organizations are encouraged to actively engage the public in the work of the project.
Amount: A total of $700,000 is available to make up to 10 grants of up to $100,000 each. The project period is for one or two years. Cost sharing is required; no more than 75 percent of total project costs will be awarded.
Eligibility: Nonprofit organizations or institutions; colleges, universities, and other academic institutions; state or local government agencies; federally-acknowledged or state-recognized Native American tribes or groups.
Note: There is an optional draft deadline on August 3, 2018.
