We received a previous LGRMIF grant to digitize records and were unable to digitize all of the records included in the grant. Can we now apply for funding to digitize the remaining records?

Do I need to obtain a resolution from my board appointing a Project Director if the Project Director will not receive any grant funded compensation?
