Grants offered to enhance access to Wyoming history

WYOMING — The Wyoming State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) is offering grants of up to $2,500 for projects promoting the preservation of and access to Wyoming’s historical records.

The grants are available to Wyoming cultural heritage organizations for projects to process, preserve, and provide increased access to historical records. Projects eligible for funding should focus on making collections of historical records more accessible, with preference given to projects for digitizing and providing online access to historical records, and attending training that will improve your organization’s ability to complete these types of projects.

The grants are available for the period of July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021 and are provided through the Wyoming SHRAB by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.

All projects related to the mission and goals of the SHRAB will be considered. For more information, including the grant application, guidelines, and a brief presentation about the grant program and how to apply, please visit the SHRAB webpage (under “Apply for Grants”). To view previous successful grant applications, see the SHRAB Wiki page.

Contact Kathy Marquis, SHRAB Coordinator and Wyoming State Archivist, with any questions (307-777-8691 or [email protected]). Completed applications must be submitted by June 15, 2020, in digital format to Kathy at the email address above or mailed to Kathy Marquis, Wyoming State Archives, 2301 Central Ave., Cheyenne, WY 82002.

The Wyoming SHRAB promotes the identification, preservation and dissemination of the state’s historical records, by encouraging and supporting ongoing training programs for state, tribal and local governments, local repositories, organizations, and others involved in records care in Wyoming. The program is administered by the Wyoming State Archives, which is part of the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources.
