The Georgia Historical Records Advisory Board (GHRAB) was created by statute in
1993. Appointed by the Governor, GHRAB is the official advisory body for
historical records planning in the state. The board is also authorized in
federal regulations governing the National Historical Publications and Records
Commission (NHPRC) through which the board's activities and other state
projects are funded.
GHRAB's board's mission is to promote the educational use of Georgia's
documentary heritage by all of its citizens; evaluate and improve the
conditions of records; encourage statewide planning for preservation and access
to Georgia's historical records; and advise the Secretary of State and the
Department of Archives and History on issues concerning records.
GHRAB administers grant programs to assist governments and organizations in
meeting their historical records needs as identified in its strategic plan.
