Document Preservation Grants Available in Rhode Island

The Rhode Island Foundation is accepting applications to the Joseph O'Neill Ott Fund. The fund was established to preserve historical manuscripts, documents, and municipal records dating from the 19th century and earlier for smaller cities and towns in Rhode Island.

Grants support direct conservation efforts for paper-based documents, photographs, and other two-dimensional historical evidence (excluding artwork). This can include restoration, preservation (including the purchase of containers or housing for documents), or to defray the costs associated with the acquisition of documents. Proposals that demonstrate concern about long-term storage issues or have planned document storage will be looked upon most favorably.

All historical and preservation societies from the smaller cities and towns of Rhode Island are eligible to apply for an Ott grant.

The application deadline is May 13, 2024
