The Maine State Archives is pleased to announce the New Century Community Grant Program for the preservation of archival collections. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations are finding their resources strained. With limited in-person interaction, this can be a great time for archival projects. The New Century Community Grant program aims to support and provide needed resources to care for and improve access to the archival collections held in Maine. Funding for the grant program comes from the Maine State Cultural Affairs Council and the Maine State Archives.
More information and the grant application can be found on the Maine State Archives website here: https://www.maine.gov/sos/arc/organizations/grants.html
June 26 is the application deadline; we expect to announce grant awards around July 15.
For more information or questions about your specific project, please contact Kate McBrien, Deputy Secretary of State for Archives, at 207-287-5790 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
