CHRAB Historical Records Preservation Grant Program

2017 Historical Records Preservation Grant Program

The Colorado Historical Records Advisory Board (CHRAB) is awaiting notification from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), on this year's funding opportunties. We ask for your continued patience. Please check this website often as the award will be announced when we have more information. (updated January 3, 2017).

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. Special consideration will be given to projects that involve digital or electronic records. The applicants will be required to contribute the 25% matching or in-kind funds. Eligible institutions may be public or private, and preference will be given to smaller institutions with a demonstrated need for funding. All of the grants will adhere to NHPRC’s general grant guidelines.
