Archives Grant Opportunities for 2022

06 Dec 2021 1:13 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

There are two grant announcements from the National Archives. Administered by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), both grant programs present opportunities for archives and special collections to collaborate.

NHPRC's Major Collaborative Archival Initiatives program is for projects to:

  • digitize and publish online historical records as a "virtual" collection around a common theme, organization, or important historical figure(s); or
  • create and test new tools and methods for the archival field to enhance public access, especially for born-digital records

Awards will be between $150,000 and $350,000.

NHPRC's Archives Collaboratives program welcomes collaborations among three or more organizations that target institutional advancement for small and underserved communities. Archives Collaboratives may:

  • be located in the same community, state, or geographic region
  • be "virtual" or online collaboratives
  • share affinities among the scope and subject matter of their collections
  • have similar organizational missions
  • serve similar types of user communities

Apply for a Planning Grant (up to $25,000) or an Implementation Grant (up to $100,000).

NHPRC hopes to expand the reach of the NHPRC, and particularly welcome those collections that focus on the voices and perspectives of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.

You can find a contact person listed in each of the Grant Announcements. The program directors would be more than happy to listen to any new ideas for collaborative projects.
