The next round of grants will be awarded in December.

“These funds will allow local agencies to preserve, manage and provide access to records in a way that benefits both the agency and the public,” Manuel said. “It is important to ensure that citizens have access to these local records now and in the future.”

Funds for the program come from fees enacted by the Kentucky General Assembly in 1984 and 2007 to preserve and retain local public records. Any local government agency can apply for this grant.

“I’m very pleased to receive the grant,” said Jobe. “It will be very helpful in upgrading our aging equipment. This will make a difference in our daily work with preserving the records. I’m thankful to KDLA for their partnership and working along with us together to take care of the records in the county and the state.”

KDLA’s Local Records Program helps to preserve, protect and make available records with continuing archival value and to assist local agencies with records management through grant support, training and direct services. KDLA is an agency of the Education and Workforce Development Cabinet.

With four regional administrators covering the state and working with local officials, KDLA ensures professional archival and records management assistance in county and city offices, school districts, and health departments. Grants have supported work in microfilming, preservation, equipment, automated indexing, digital imaging systems and codification of ordinances.

KDLA provides equitable access to quality library and information resources and services, as well as helps public agencies ensure that legislatively mandated documentation of government programs is created, efficiently maintained and made accessible.
