    The National Disaster Recovery Fund for Archives provide grants that support the recovery of archival collections from major disasters, regardless of region or repository type.

    Complete instructions for donating to the fund or applying to receive funds are available at the above link. 
    Our thoughts and support go out to our members in Oklahoma who may have been affected this week.

    Background on the fund: 
    In September 2005, the Society of Southwest Archivists and the Society of American Archivists created the SSA-SAA Emergency Disaster Assistance Grant Fund - a fund established to address the stabilization and recovery needs of archival repositories that were directly affected by Hurricane Katrina. Since then, the scope of the fund has been expanded to the national scale, and the name changed to the National Disaster Recovery Fund for Archives.
