Al Larvick Conservation Fund (ALCF)
Grants of up to $5,000 to North Dakota individuals, institutions, and organizations for the conservation of home and amateur audiovisual materials and their digital transfers. Funding is intended to help cover the costs of products and services by professional film and video labs for the preservation of personal and public cultural histories.
