Congrats to Our Spring 2023 Planning & Assessment Class!
We concluded our spring Planning & Assessment Services application round this past March, and the response was amazing! From a competitive pool of applicants, our independent field reviewers selected 15 collecting organizations to receive free Archival Needs Assessments, Preservation Surveys, and Strategic Planning Assistance. We also extend heartfelt congratulations to our new cohort of sites selected for Foundational Planning Assistance.
Application materials for DHPSNY Archival Needs Assessments, Preservation Surveys, Condition Surveys, and Strategic Planning Assistance are accepted year-round and reviewed three times a year. The next application review deadline is Friday, July 7, 2023. Foundational Planning Assistance is accepted year-round on a rolling basis.
