Does your institution hold unprocessed archival papers, at-risk image collections in need of digitization, or other historical records in need of preservation? The Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board (USHRAB) has additional funding opportunities! 

Grants from the USHRAB are accessible to government (excluding federal) and non-profit institutions that care for documentary collections of historical and enduring value. Funding of up to $7,500 is available for projects designed to increase access to and preservation of historical records. Projects are selected by the Board on a competitive basis. We anticipate that this round will be especially competitive.

Awards require a one-to-one in-kind and/or cash match and must contain a public access component such as making digitized images available online or creating an online finding aid or index. Funds are intended for short-term projects. Work cannot begin prior to October 15, 2020 and must be completed by June 26, 2021.

Applications are required and must be received by September 3, 2020. We strongly encourage applicants to take advantage of an optional draft deadline of August 10.

Guidelines, applications, and additional forms are available at https://archives.utah.gov/USHRAB/grants.html. Answers to frequently asked questions can be found here
