The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks proposals to strengthen archives and historical records programs in each of the states and build a national archival network. The Commission awards grants to State Historical Records Advisory Boards to:
These SNAP grants are awarded only to SHRABs in each state, or to the state agency responsible for the SHRAB, ordinarily the state archives. Another state agency, or a non-profit organization, such as a foundation or university, acting on behalf of the designated state agency may apply. States also include the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and United States territories.
The NHPRC expects to award up to 56 grants in this program. Applicants may apply for outright basic grants of up to $15,000 for 12-month projects, or up to $30,000 for 24-month projects. Applicants may also apply for supplemental grants of up to $35,000 for 12-month projects, or up to $75,000 for 24-month projects. The total amount allocated for this program is up to $1,180,000.
Projects to reactivate a State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) and develop or revise the SHRAB's strategic plan should request a maximum of $5,000.
Active State Historical Records Advisory Boards may apply for a grant of up to $15,000 per year to carry out project activities aligned with their board's current strategic plan.
In addition, active SHRABs may request in their applications up to $35,000 per year in additional funds for regrants or collaborative projects. These supplemental funds will be awarded competitively, provided monies are available.
Cost sharing is required. It is the financial contribution the applicant pledges to the cost of a project. Cost sharing can include both direct and indirect expenses, in-kind contributions, non-Federal third-party contributions, and any income earned directly by the project. The NHPRC will provide up to 50 percent of the total project costs.
