Grant Funding Amount Low : Open
Deadline : Ongoing

Annual grant provides small and mid-sized museums with a free assessment of their museum or archive collections. Successful grant applicants will receive a half-day site visit from a museum curator or archivist who will examines collections on exhibit, in storage, and policies and procedures related to collection care and management and provide a written report. Every assessment report will include a prioritized list of recommendations for improving the care and management of collections. These recommendations are intended to help institutions decide where to invest limited resources, alert board members to collections care concerns, provide documentation that can support development of a long-range collection/preservation plan, and be used to fundraise for collection projects.
