About the IPER Project

The Council of State Archivists developed and delivered Web- and CD-based training for state and local governments nationwide. The Intergovernmental Preparedness for Essential Records (IPER) project was made possible by a $2.6 million award from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Competitive Grants Training Program.

The Maryland State Archives offered in-person classes based upon this model, but regularly scheduled classes were discontinued after 2015. The associated class materials and resources are linked below.
