2017 Archival Assistance Fund Application Now Available!

May 31, 2017

The New York Preservation Archive Project is excited to announce that the application form for the 2017 round of grants from the Archival Assistance Fund is now available. The Archival Assistance Fund was established to assist historic preservation-related not-for-profit organizations and other similar institutions in identifying and maintaining their archival resources and organizational documents. With these grants specifically targeted to the preservation community, the Archive Project hopes to instill a lasting archival mindset in the New York City preservation civic sector. 
 
Applicants must demonstrate their collection’s significance to the history of historic preservation in New York City. Projects and expenses may include, but are not limited to, hiring an archival consultant; creating an archival policy; performing a survey of archival collections; the creation of collection inventories and finding aids; collections processing; the purchase of archival supplies and materials; increasing public accessibility to collections; scanning and digitization; and the creation of new management strategies for operational records. 
 
Applications are due July 31st!
