NHPRC Threatened - President's budget provides $0 for archival grants.
The Executive Budget for Fiscal Year 2007 once again requests zero
dollars for the National Historical Publications and Records Commission
Many of ARSC member's institutions benefit greatly from this
program--the only federal program that focuses on grants to records and
records repositories. We urge you to help save NHPRC and ask Congress to
appropriate $20 million in FY07.
The Friends of the Georgia Archives have created a wiki
(http://foga.pbwiki.com/) which explains how you can help. Although this
site is primarily based on the State of Georgia, there is quite a bit of
info that could be utilized regardless of where your institution is
