The Georgia Historical Records Advisory Board (GHRAB) was created by statute in 1993. In 2013, when the General Assembly transferred the Georgia Archives to the University System of Georgia, GHRAB became the Georgia Historical Records Advisory Council (GHRAC). Appointed by the Governor, GHRAC is the official advisory body for historical records planning in the state. The Council is also authorized in federal regulations governing the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) through which the Council’s activities and other state projects are funded.
GHRAC’s council’s mission is to promote the educational use of Georgia’s documentary heritage by all of its citizens; evaluate and improve the conditions of records; encourage statewide planning for preservation and access to Georgia’s historical records; and advise the Georgia Archives on issues concerning records.
GHRAC administers grant programs to assist governments and organizations in meeting their historical records needs as identified in its strategic plan.
