The Ohio Archives Grants are funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission , an arm of the National Archives and Records Administration.

Highlights include:

  • Eligible institutions may be public or private.
  • Any size institution may apply, but preference will be given to institutions with permanently valuable archival materials of 500 cubic feet or fewer.
  • Eligible projects include those involving physical access, arrangement and description; preservation (including storage materials); and making catalog descriptions of records or digital images of records available online.  New this year: assessment and strategic planning projects are also eligible for funding.  This can include hiring consultants to identify needs and priorities for improving the organization, description, preservation and access to collections.
  • Eligible expenses include supplies and storage materials, technical equipment, and contracted services.

Funding is made available by a Federal regrant opportunity from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), a division of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
