Tennessee Historical Records Advisory Board (THRAB)

Acting as a coordinating body, it promotes cooperation and communication between records repositories and information agencies within the state and serves as a state-level review body for proposals identified in the grant program guidelines of the NHPRC. The Board also administers regrant and other special projects for historical records.


The Board seeks to identify, preserve, and provide access to a wide range of historical records which include not only those generated in the public sector which document the activities of state and local government agencies, but also those from the private sector which record the activities of private individuals, families, organizations, and corporations.
