Archival supplies small grants

This post is a grant announcement from the Mass SCHRAB
The Massachusetts State Historical Records Advisory Board (MA SHRAB) is excited to announce, through funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), that grants of up to $500 are now available to cultural institutions in Massachusetts for the purchase of archival supplies.
Any institution or organization that maintains archival collections may apply, and preference will be given to those who have already received a Roving Archivist assessment and to those with collections spanning 500 linear feet or less (to learn more about the Roving Archivist program, please visit the SHRAB website
). Funds may also cover supplies that are necessary to maintain research and reading room safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A small cost share of 25% is required from applicants, which can be covered through matching funds or in-kind services. For more information and to apply, please review the SHRAB Institutional Application for Regrants
or email SH…@sec.state.ma.us
The deadline for applications is February 7, 2022.
