Other Activities

In addition to encouraging and evaluating specific grant proposals to the NHPRC, the Board will assist organizations requesting support for records projects from other federal agencies such as the National Endowment for the Humanities, and from funding sources within the state, including private foundations and the Minnesota Historical Society’s Grant-in Aid Program.

The Board also believes that the importance of historical records and the case for their preservation must be publicized widely. The Board encourages its members to speak to other organizations on its behalf, distributes information on its role and that of NHPRC, encourages cooperative development and use of resources and the exchange of information among institutions holding historical records, and supports increased funding for the NHPRC and other records preservation programs. Finally, the Board monitors and comments on legislation, regulations, rulings, and procedures affecting Minnesota’s historical records.
