USHRAB grants fund projects that preserve and/or provide access to historical records that reflect Utah’s diverse populations and histories. To date, USHRAB has awarded more than $400,000 in grant funding for Utah-based archival projects. Funding is competitive and applications are required. Funding must be matched 1:1 in kind or in cash and projects must contain a public access component.
