Joseph O’Neill Ott Fund

The Rhode Island Foundation is now accepting applications for the Joseph O’Neill Ott Fund.

The Joseph O’Neill Ott Fund supports the preservation of historical manuscripts, documents and municipal records dating from the 19th century and earlier from the smaller cities and towns in Rhode Island.

Grants generally range from $250-$750 and support direct conservation efforts for paper-based documents, photographs, and other two-dimensional historical evidence (excluding artwork). This can include restoration, preservation, or to defray the costs associated with the acquisition of documents. Proposals that demonstrate concern about long-term storage issues or have planned document storage will be looked upon most favorably.

All historical and preservation societies from the smaller cities and towns of Rhode Island are eligible to apply.

The deadline to apply is March 09, 2018. Please click here to apply for the Joseph O’Neill Ott Fund.

Applicants are also encouraged to look at the Rhode Island Supreme Court Historical Society Fund (see above) to see if their project meets that fund’s similar requirements.
