2015 Archival Assessment and Digitization Grants
The Indiana State Historic Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) is offering two grant opportunities for organizations that preserve and maintain historic collections of Indiana records. 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. Applications must be received by email or postmarked no later than Monday, December 7, 2015.
