Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $7,500 to Utah nonprofit organizations, government agencies, libraries, museums, archives, and IHEs to process, preserve, and increase access to the State's historical records. Funding is intended for archival activities that ensure the sustainability, care, and preservation of documents, collections, and records. Collections considered for grant projects must be archival documentary collections of historical, enduring, and permanent value.

Preservation Projects: The USHRAB seeks proposals for the processing and preservation of historical records in Utah. These grants are intended for short-term projects. Digitization projects are eligible as preservation projects so long as the goal is to preserve records that are in fragile condition. The original records must be retained and maintained. Historical records preservation projects for which funds can be applied include, but are not limited to:

  • Processing or organizing historical records
  • Preservation of electronically born collections, such as digital photographs
  • Conservation or preservation of damaged records

Access Projects: The USHRAB seeks proposals promoting access to historical records. Eligible projects might include creating EAD finding aids. Digitization projects are eligible as access projects if they make use of existing holdings of locally or regionally significant historical record collections. The materials should already be processed so that projects can re-use existing information to serve as metadata for the digitized collection. The original materials must be retained and maintained. Grants fund one-time projects and are evaluated on how the project directly affects the program of the repository. The project must provide results that are measurable and are related to the preservation and accessibility of the historical records within the collection.

All grant projects require a public access component, such as making digital images available online or creating an online finding aid or index. USHRAB grant projects for digitization must adhere to the Best Practices for digital formatting and metadata standards outlined by the Utah State Archives to ensure the sustainability of digital collections.
