LGRMIF – NY Document Scanning Grants
** Updated for 2024-2025 Grant Cycle **
CASO Document Management (CDM) can help your local government agency go paperless by establishing a fully compliant records scanning program with an eGrant from New York’s Local Government Records Management Improvement Fund (LGRMIF).
As an NYSID Partner for over 12 years, CDM provides you with expert application guidance to maximize approval odds and program support to help eGrant recipients implement and maintain their new scanning solution – which replaces wasteful paper documents with digital PDFs. CDM provides all the necessary support to ensure your application is complete and meets eligibility requirements. A designated CDM grant writer will work directly with your Records Management Officer (RMO) to define your project scope, program eligibility requirements and draft the necessary documentation. For more than a decade, CDM has guided numerous agencies each year to eGrant approval.
About LGRMIF eGrants
LGRMIF grants are awarded by the New York State Grant Administration Unit in an effort to upgrade government agencies to a paperless environment.
LGRMIF eGrants are designed to help local government agencies establish secure records management programs or develop new program components. It is a competitive program, awarding grants based on the merits of applications. Created in 1989, the fund comes from fees collected by county clerks and the New York City Register. These fees are collected during the recording of certain documents and when county clerks assign index numbers for certain court cases. The amount of grant funding available each year depends on the number of documents recorded and index numbers assigned that year.
eGrants are awarded using the following framework:
Types of eGrants
- Individual (up to $75,000)
- Shared Services (up to $150,000)
- NYC Dept. of Records (DORIS)
- Disaster Management
- Document Conversion and Access
- Files Management
- Historical Records
- Inactive Records

A local government is responsible for meeting all eligibility requirements and for submitting a complete application by the deadline. This includes the submission of all required paper forms: FS-10-/Proposed Budget, Institutional Authorization form, Payee Information form, and the Standard Data Capture form. Applications submitted without including any of these forms by the posted deadline will not be forwarded for review and will not be considered for funding.
All applications are reviewed using the following steps:
