CHRAB Historical Records Preservation Re-Grant Program

The Colorado Historical Records Advisory Board (CHRAB) is happy to announce this year's funding opportunities from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) for the fiscal year 2024-2025 Re-Grant session. This year, five grants of $5,000 will be awarded to eligible applicants around the State of Colorado. The grant period for these funds is scheduled for July 21, 2024 – June 30th, 2025. 

Due to the success last year, CHRAB will be accepting draft applications prior to the final application date.  A board member will review draft applications, provide feedback and suggest ways to improve your final application. Draft applications will be received for review until May 1st and sent back by May 17th. Final applications are due June 30, 2024 at 11:59 PM, for consideration.

Organizations are able to request funding for a wide variety of projects, including digitization, preservation needs, disaster planning, improving accessibility to collections and purchasing supplies. Some special consideration will be given to institutions in previously underrepresented areas of the State of Colorado.  A preference will be given to projects with a strong focus on digital accessibility and preservation. Due to NHPRC guidelines, projects for digitizing newspapers will not be eligible for grant funding from CHRAB. NHPRC lists the types of projects eligible for NHPRC funding


Applicants will be required to contribute the 25% matching or in-kind funds. All of the grants will adhere to NHPRC’s general grant guidelines.
