Documentary Heritage Program Grants

The Documentary Heritage Program (DHP) is a statewide program established by law to provide financial support and guidance to not-for-profit organizations that hold, collect and make available New York's historical records. Funding is available to support projects that relate to groups and topics traditionally under-represented in New York’s historical record. The New York State Education Department’s (NYSED) 2015-2016 appropriation for DHP includes $92,000 for DHP Grants. DHP Grant Project Types are Documentation and Arrangement & Description. DHP is administered by the New York State Archives, a unit of the New York State Education Department.

For further information about the DHP program, including an explanation of DHP’s Priorities, visit the Documentary Heritage Program (DHP) information page.

2015-2016 DHP Grant Program

Prequalification requirement for all grant applicants

New York State has implemented a statewide prequalification requirement for not-for-profits applying for grants. In order to be eligible to apply, all grant applicants are required to prequalify using the New York State Grants Gateway. This one-time prequalification registration process requests information about an organization’s capacity, legal compliance, and integrity. This process may take up to a few weeks to complete. If you have not already done so, begin the prequalification registration process immediately if you are considering applying for a 2015-2016 DHP Grant.

2015-2016 DHP Grant deadline is Friday, April 24, 2015.
