Ohio Archives Grant Program (SNAP Re-grant Work Group)

The Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board is pleased to announce a second grant opportunity for 2016.  These grants are for $500 up to $4,500 and may be used by archival institutions to increase online access to Ohio’s historical records.  These grants are funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), an arm of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) through their State Board Programming Grants.

Proposals must be received by June 30, 2016.  Awards will be announced July 11, and projects must be completed by December 31, 2016.

• Eligible institutions may be public or private that provide public access to archival collections without charging a fee.

• Any size institution may apply, but preference will be given to institutions with permanently valuable archival materials of 500 cubic feet or fewer. 

• Eligible projects may include those involving physical access, arrangement and description; preservation (including storage materials); and cataloging.  However, projects must include producing some type of online content, such as a finding aid or digital images.        

• Eligible expenses include supplies and storage materials, technical equipment, and contracted services.
