Museum Program Professional Development Grants  may be submitted to  museums@arts.ny.gov  as of 11:00 AM on Tuesday, January 10, 2017.

No applications will be accepted before 11:00 AM on that day. You will know your application has been properly submitted if you receive an Auto-Reply from  museums@arts.ny.gov. If you do not receive the Auto Reply your application was not submitted during the "open" period and you should submit again.

The program will offer awards of up to $750 per museum for relevant professional development on a first-come, first-served basis. We will be able to fund just over 40 requests. Guidelines, FAQ, a selected list of conferences, and a fillable application form are available at:
