JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri State Archives is awarding nearly $57,000 in grants to help preserve historical records.
Museums, libraries, colleges and universities and local governments are eligible for the grants. The money can be used to preserve and provide access to historical records, hire consultants and buy supplies for archiving records. The deadline to apply is Oct. 1.
Grant applications are encouraged for records that have been under-documented. That includes architecture, post-World War II immigrants and small religious organizations.
The funds come from a grant awarded to the State Archives.
