MUSEUM GRANT PROGRAM
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.
The California Museum awards were approved by the California Cultural and Historical Endowment June 10, 2016. Workshops for the next cycle will begin Spring 2017 with applications likely due September 2017. To get on the mailing list, please use the link below:
