State Historical Advisory Boards are authorized under federal regulations governed by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (36 CFR Chapter 12). In this capacity, their primary responsibilities are to:
The Nevada State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) was created by statute in 1989 and was the first such Board created by law in the nation. SHRAB promotes the establishment and proper maintenance of archives and public records programs throughout the state. The governor appoints the Board to advise and make recommendations to the legislature. Per NRS 378A, the Board includes the State Archivist, the State Library, Archives and Public Records Administrator, and public members.

SHRABs often move beyond advisory and coordination roles to develop and implement programs that address priorities for their state's historical records. A number of SHRABs have undertaken projects for statewide surveys, public awareness, education and training, and re-grants supported with NHPRC funds. SHRABs may also seek non-federal funding in support of such programs.
An important source of support for SHRAB-sponsored projects is NHPRC's State Board Programming Grant program (formerly the State and National Partnership (SNAP) Grant program). Since 2008, NHPRC has awarded over $4.5 million to 46 SHRABs for activities to strengthen historical records programs and build a national archival network.
