CHRAB Historical Records Preservation Re-Grant Program

The Colorado Historical Records Advisory Board (CHRAB) is happy to announce this year's funding opportunities from National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) for Re-Grants. Six grants of $5,000 will be awarded to eligible applicants around the State of Colorado. The grant period for these funds is July 1, 2021 - June 30, 2022. This year, CHRAB will be accepting draft applications. A board member will look over draft applications and provide feedback you may use on your final application. Draft applications will be received for review until April 15, 2021. Final applications are due May 15, 2021 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 smaller, rural areas of the State and 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. Please visit for a list of 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.
