National Historical Publications & Records Commission

Access to Historical Records: Major Initiatives

  • Deadline:
  • Budget: $100,000 - $350,000

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks projects that will significantly improve public discovery and use of major historical records collections. The Commission is especially interested in collections of America’s early legal records, such as the records of colonial, territorial, county, and early statehood and tribal proceedings that document the evolution of the nation’s legal history.

The NHPRC welcomes collaborative projects, particularly for bringing together related records from multiple institutions. Projects that address significant needs in the field and result in replicable and scalable approaches will be more competitive. We also encourage organizations to actively engage the public in the work of the project.

Eligible applicants:
Nonprofit organizations or institutions
Colleges, universities, and other academic institutions
State or local government agencies
Federally-acknowledged or state-recognized Native American tribes or groups
