There is no cohesive model of cooperation between the state and the community archives, while there are many good practices in state archives policy in relation to community archives, to grant programs, whether to self-organization of the community archives network. They also presented a useful point of reference for Poland.

That's why KARTA Center started the project "Community archive stabilization project". The project is carried out within the program ‘Citizens for Democracy’, financed by the EEA Funds.
