The Documentary Heritage Program (DHP) is a New York State program designed to locate, organize, and make accessible historical records that are critical to ensuring the survival of New York’s heritage. Established by law in 1988, the DHP is administered by the New York State Archives and is funded through the Local Government Records Management Improvement Fund. The DHP offers annual DHP Grants to not-for-profit organizations in New York State that collect, hold and make available historical records.

There are nine regional service providers that furnish services locally. CDLC is the service provider for Albany, Fulton, Hamilton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Warren and Washington counties of upstate New York.
