Funding from this program strengthens efforts to extend the life of collections materials and make their intellectual content widely accessible. Awards are also made to create various reference resources that facilitate the use of cultural materials.
HCRR offers two kinds of awards: 1) for implementation and 2) for planning, assessment, and pilot efforts (HCRR Foundations grants).
ELIGIBLE GRANT ACTIVITIES: Planning; Assessments; Digitization, including audio recordings; Rehousing; Conservation treatment leading to enhanced access

America’s cultural heritage is preserved not only in libraries, museums, archives, and other community organizations, but also in all of our homes, family histories, and life stories. The Common Heritage program aims to capture this vitally important part of our country’s heritage and preserve it for future generations. Common Heritage will support both the digitization of cultural heritage materials and the organization of public programming at community events that explore these materials as a window on a community’s history and culture.
ELIGIBLE GRANT ACTIVITIES: Organization and presentation of digitization events for the community.
Here’s a great story about a successful Common Heritage Grant program in Westborough, MA.
