2009-11 Local Records Grant Program
Archival Records and the Grant Program
The Local Government Records Grant Program assists local governments to meet their
responsibilities for preserving and improving access to public records.
The 2009 -11 Local Records Grant Program will focus on the preservation and access
of the following archival records
- County Auditor Recorded Documents (especially deeds)
- Court Records
The program will focus on getting records digitized and made accessible through
the Digital Archives. The original records may then be transferred to archives to
ensure permanent preservation.
The grant budget for the 2009-11 Grant Program is $200,000, with a maximum of $10,000
being awarded to a single recipient. There is also funding available for the purchase
of archives storage boxes to aid in the protection of records.
Applications will be reviewed and grants awarded on a competitive basis. Agencies
are encouraged to work with their local branch archivists in the development of
their grant applications.
