National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) Electronic Records Grant Program

The focus of the NHPRC's Electronic Records grant program is to support projects that will lead to sustainable electronic records archives that preserve digital records with enduring historical value. Projects cannot use grant funds to digitize historical records. Applicants who wish to digitize records should refer to the Digitizing Historical Records announcement.
We seek applications for projects that:

  1. Develop institutional capacity through program evaluation and planning;
  2. Create institutional capacity with program start-up support;
  3. Expand the scope of existing programs; or
  4. Develop electronic records service providers that can offer reliable preservation services to archives.

We strongly encourage each application to include professional development components necessary for the success of the project. These may consist of basic or advanced e-records training for archives staff, agency records managers, high level administrators, IT staff, and others.

NHPRC support begins no earlier than January 1, 2009.
Draft Deadline (optional): April 1, 2008
Final Deadline: June 2, 2008
