MUSEUM GRANT PROGRAM

THE 2014-15 GRANT CYCLE IS NOW OPEN!

APPLICATION DEADLINE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2015

The California Cultural and Historical Endowment is pleased to announce the release of the Guidelines and Application for the 2014-15 Museum Grant Program. Solicitation is now open!

In 2013, Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 482, which authorized creation of a specified competitive grant program, to support small capital projects in museums including the acquisition of real property, or construction projects at museum facilities or venues.

Funding is currently available from Proposition 40 bond funds for two cycles of $2 million each. Proceeds from the new Snoopy Special Interest License Plate (www.snoopyplate.com) are planned to fund the program in future years.

The Guidelines include information to assist you in preparing an application for funding. Please be sure to read these Guidelines, Application and Forms in their entirety for important information on project eligibility, evaluation criteria and submission requirements.
