The New Mexico Historical Records Advisory Board (NMHRAB) announced its Regrant Program to eligible entities for improving the preservation of New Mexico’s historical records. Acequias are eligible as political subdivisions of the State of New Mexico, and are a priority of the NMHRAB, which receives funds from the New Mexico Legislature and the National Historic Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) to fund its Historical Records Grant Program. The program was developed to improve the preservation of, and access to, the state’s historical records. The maximum award is $8500. Grants are contingent upon available federal funds and/or appropriated state funds. The application deadline is Friday, February 12th, 2011.
