Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $750 to Rhode Island preservation and historical societies for the preservation of historically significant documents in smaller towns and cities throughout the State. Funding is intended to support the preservation of original historical documents, municipal records, and manuscripts dating from the 19th century and earlier.

Grants are available to support direct conservation efforts for paper-based documents, photographs, and other two-dimensional historical evidence (excluding artwork). This can include restoration, preservation (including the purchase of containers or housing for documents), or to defray the costs associated with the acquisition of documents. Proposals that demonstrate concern about long-term storage issues or have planned document storage will be looked upon most favorably.
