The State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) is the state level partner of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) for the State of Nevada. State Historical Advisory Boards are authorized under federal regulations (36 CFR Chapter 12). In this capacity, Nevada SHRAB's primary responsibilities are to:
- Develop, revise, and submit to the NHPRC a state plan including priorities for state historical records projects
- Review grant proposals to NHPRC for state and local records projects within the State of Nevada and make recommendations on these proposals to the NHPRC
The Nevada State Historical Records Advisory Board (NVSHRAB) was created by statute in 1989 and was the first such board created by law in the nation. The governor appoints the Board to advise and make recommendations to the legislature.
