Applications are now available for museums throughout Utah. Museum grant applications will be due Jan 30, at 5 p.m.
“Utah museums are a vital force in the state’s cultural life, informing and entertaining millions of patrons each year,” said Lynnette Hiskey, Utah Arts & Museums Director. “We’re pleased to offer this funding to help museums reach their broader goals.” Previously funded projects have supported collection management, storage and cataloging, progress towards state performance goals, and temporary staff to carry out funded projects.
Two different grants are available: development grants and project support grants. All grants require a 1:1 cash match. Guidelines are available at artsandmuseums.utah.gov and applications must be submitted through our electronic grants system. Applications are reviewed by a panel of peers in the field and approved by the Utah Arts & Museums’ Office of Museum Services Advisory Board.
