NHPRC Grant Program

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) makes grants to help identify, preserve, and provide public access to records, photographs, and other materials that document American history. The grants go to state and local archives, colleges and universities, libraries, historical societies, and other nonprofit organizations throughout the U.S.

The Oklahoma Historical Records Advisory Board (OHRAB) functions as the state's liaison to NHPRC. It conducts these ongoing NHPRC grant activities:

  • Reviews records proposals of state and local significance before NHPRC makes its funding recommendations.
  • Provides consultation and advice to potential NHPRC grant applicants.
  • Develops state-level grant application packages to address statewide historical records issues and needs.

In its liaison capacity, OHRAB reviews grant applications submitted to the NHPRC from Oklahoma. The Board gives preference to projects that:

  • Identify and preserve endangered historically significant records;
  • Create an effective, efficient, and systematic records management and archival program for local government records;
  • Identify and preserve historically significant records pertaining to Native American organizations in Oklahoma; and
  • Provide direction and expertise for the creation and preservation of archival collections.

Proposals for NHPRC grants should be submitted to OHRAB by:

  • April 15 for founding era documentary editing projects, and electronic records projects. (NHPRC deadline June 1)
  • August 15 for all other eligible projects. (NHPRC deadline October 1)

Application guidelines and forms may be obtained from NHPRC's web site or by contacting NHPRC at:
