Historic Documents Preservation Program


Sections 11-8i through 11-8n of the Connecticut General Statutes authorize the creation of a dedicated fund and a grant program utilizing those funds to enhance or improve the preservation and management of historic documents. The Office of the Public Records Administrator oversees the fund and administers the grant program to help municipalities enhance or improve the preservation and management of their records as well as to provide training and technical assistance. The Historic Documents Preservation Program offers targeted grants and disaster recovery grants: • Targeted Grants are awarded for projects in pre-established categories as described in the grant guidelines. Every municipality in good standing that submits a properly completed application for an eligible project by the deadline can receive a targeted grant each year. • Disaster Recovery Grants are intended to help defray records recovery costs not covered by insurance in the event of a natural or man-made disaster affecting essential, permanent, or archival records. In the event of a records disaster, please contact the office immediately at 860-757-6540. Disaster recovery grant applications must be filed within ninety (90) days of discovering the disaster, unless extenuating circumstances preclude this. In accordance with Section 11-8n (b), the State Librarian meets with an advisory committee of town clerks representing small, medium and large towns from across the state on a regular basis.
