The New York State Archives has developed new resources to aid in the application process for Documentary Heritage Program (DHP) grants. The document at the link includes presentation slides on proposal guidelines, tip sheets on writing successful project descriptions, and examples of successful project narratives.
DHP grants provide nearly $500,000 annually to non-profit collecting institutions who work to provide access to records important to the history of New York State. The application deadline for the 2014/15 round of DHP grants will be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, institutions who would like to get a head start on preparing their proposal(s) are encouraged to review the guidelines for the 2013/14 cycle.
