California 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.

We are not currently accepting applications for this program. Draft Guidelines for the next round are coming soon. If you would like to stay informed about future funding opportunities, please sign up for our mailing list.


Snoopy Plate Proceeds from the new Snoopy Special Interest License Plate are planned to fund the program in future years. Click here to purchase your Snoopy License Plate and support California museums!
