PASCO -- The city of Pasco is among 33 local government agencies in Washington receiving a total of $200,000 in grants to help preserve and improve access to public records.
The grants come from the Washington State Archives' Local Records Grant Program in cooperation with the Archives Oversight Committee, which consists of local government officials.
Pasco will receive $10,000 from the grant program.
The grants will be used to digitize and microfilm important legal and historical records. There were 104 applications requesting an estimated total of $887,000.
"For the past 10 years, this grant program has helped nearly 250 local government entities preserve records for future generations, and we're very pleased to continue our support of these fine projects," said Secretary of State Sam Reed.
