The Indiana State Historic Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) is offering a new grant opportunity for organizations that preserve and maintain historic collections of Indiana records. The 2013 Historical Document Preservation and Digitization Grant allows for organizations to apply for archival assessment or digitization funds. Archival assessment funds allow 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 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 postmarked or electronically received no later than Friday, May 31, 2013. Grantees will be announced July 3, 2013.
