Five area records keeping entities have been award grants to help with records management and preservation projects.

Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft’s Local Records Division announced 23 grants totaling $283,584, including 17 Local Records Grant Program awards totaling $144,809 and six Electronic Records Grant Initiative grants worth $139,775.

Based on recommendations of the Missouri Historical Records Advisory Board, the Local Records Grants provide the recipient local governments with assistance for records management and preservation projects. The Electronic Records Grant Initiative grants are intended to assist local governments in establishing good electronic records management practices and to provide greater transparency by allowing greater public access to records online.

Among those receiving a Local Records Grant were the Mercer County Circuit Clerk/Recorder that received a $4,000 grant for a plat map storage cabinet and the Livingston County Library that received a grant of $9,713 for shelving.
