New York State Archives recently announced that the application for 2011-2012 Documentary Heritage Program grants is now available. The Documentary Heritage Program (DHP) is a statewide program established by law to provide financial support and guidance to not-for-profit organizations that hold, collect and make available New York's historical records. Funding is available to support sound archival administration, and for projects that relate to groups and topics traditionally under-represented in New York’s historical record.
The New York State Education Department’s (NYSED) 2010-2011 appropriation for DHP is $461,000. This includes $369,000 for regional services and $92,000 for DHP Grants. DHP Grant Project Types include: Documentation, Arrangement and Description, and Archival Needs Assessment. DHP is administered by the New York State Archives, a unit of the New York State Education Department.
